Department of Public Works
When you drive on county roads, fly from a neighborhood airport, or pull over for that snowplow on your way to Julian, you have interacted with our department. Your safety and convenience matter to us, and we make sure nearly 2,000 miles of roadways, bridges and guardrails, signs, traffic signals and crosswalks are ready for you, as well as the eight County airports we operate including McClellan-Palomar, Gillespie Field and Ramona.
Our vast network of sewage pipes and pump stations, flood channels and water detention facilities keep things flowing for you all year long. During storm events, we keep the channels and drains clear to minimize flooding.
Nearly all your county public infrastructure is designed, built, managed or operated by our team. We stand for safe communities, sustainable environments, and healthy families.
As part of the County’s Land Use & Environment Group, we are here to help you thrive and look forward to serving you
