Divisions

The Public Works Department is composed of the following operation divisions.

Administration

Building Inspections & Code Enforcement

Building inspectors review Building Commission, Planning Commission, and Board of Adjustment applications. Inspections usually occur on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Permits and Licensing Clerk issues contractor registrations, building, electrical, plumbing, roofing, and other City permits.

Sanitation

The Sanitation Division provides house-side pick-up service twice weekly. Collection days on your block will be Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday.

Streets

The Streets Division consists of one Crew Chief and two Maintenance Workers. The responsibilities of this division are patching, sealing cracks in the streets, potholes, street signs, and traffic signals, keeping catch basins clean from debris, and keeping the streets clean.

Stormwater Quality

The Stormwater Quality Division implements educational and regulatory initiatives to encourage environmentally sound development and redevelopment. The program intends to reduce the number of pollutants in our nation's waterways before they get into the waterways.

Water / Sanitary Sewer

The City's water supply comes from the Garber-Wellington Aquifer. The City owns and operates twenty-three water wells. In addition, three ground reservoirs and two elevated tank reservoirs hold 8,750,000 gallons in reserve for use and fire protection.

The city sanitary sewer system protects the health and safety of the City. These lines are more than adequate to meet the city's needs. Sewage is processed and treated by the City of Oklahoma City at its North Canadian treatment plant.

Civil Engineering

For many years, the City has utilized the civil engineering firm, Smith, Roberts, and Baldischwiler, to provide all of the city's engineering, development, and surveying, as well as providing assistance to the City in long-range public works planning functions.
