About Public Works
Keeping Richmond Ready and Resilient
National Public Works Week - May 15-21, 2022
Public Works is responsible for the “hidden” services that are essential to Richmond residents and businesses. Many of the services we rely on in our every day lives are out of sight or go unnoticed yet they are operating 24-hours a day, seven days week. Public Works staff maintain fire hydrants, roadways, watermains, street lights, drainage, litter collection, pump stations and more. These services are the foundation of an appealing, livable and well-managed community.
