WHAT WE DO

DPW crews patrol and fix our nearly 2,000 miles of County roadways, replace guardrails and continually repaint crosswalks and other legends in the roadway. They maintain a vast network of sewage pipes and pump stations. They build and maintain flood channels and water detention facilities. They keep our county drains and storm channels clear, keep our traffic signals and street lights lit. They design and build roadways, sidewalks, bike lanes, pedestrian pathways, equestrian trails,  bridges, and other solutions to our transportation needs. DPW operates eight County airports including McClellan-Palomar Airport, Gillespie Field, and Ramona Airport - a base for Cal Fire. DPW also works with private developers in building for the future - ensuring public facilities meet standards for safety. They oversee inactive landfills and help protect our environment. There is hardly a part of our public infrastructure that DPW does not help design, build, manage or keep operational to help ensure we have safe communities, sustainable environments, and healthy families.
