Public Works designs, builds and maintains the city’s water, wastewater, storm drain, street, sidewalk, park, landscape, urban forest and related infrastructure. The department is also responsible for managing various city facilities and the city’s entire fleet. The department prepares and coordinates the capital budget for facilities and the capital and maintenance budgets for all city infrastructure.

Public Works reviews new developments to ensure that infrastructure is in compliance with city, state and federal codes, regulations and standards. The department oversees the capital budget and operation of the South County Regional Wastewater Authority, which treats the wastewater for Gilroy and Morgan Hill and produces recycled water for south Santa Clara County.
