The City is a regional provider of drinking water and must ensure that an abundant, safe, and affordable supply is available.
The wastewater collection and treatment system must serve an expanding community while complying with all environmental standards. The treatment system includes the production of reclaimed water that is provided to a portion of the community for use in irrigation.Other departmental work areas range from streets and stormwater management to the maintenance of city facilities and municipal vehicles.
