About the Public Works Department

The Public Works Department consists of three Divisions (Engineering, Maintenance, and Water) that work together and independently to provide a variety of maintenance, operations, and engineering services to our residents. The Department is overseen by the Public Works Director, who provides budgetary and management direction.

Engineering Division

The Engineering Division is responsible for contracting and overseeing capital projects, the implementation of traffic control systems, Landscape Maintenance Districts (LMDs), storm drains, reviewing current development, providing education and outreach on recycling, and managing the city's garbage waste and recycling contract.

Maintenance Division

The largest and most diverse Division, the Maintenance Division is responsible for the maintenance and repair of City-owned infrastructure including traffic signals, water distribution lines, the Municipal Marina, streets and alleys, city buildings and vehicles, as well as the upkeep of city-owned grounds.

To report a non-emergency maintenance problem, please use SeeClickFix. If this is an emergency such as a main break, call (707) 648-4556. Be prepared to share the exact location and nature of the problem so we may better assist you.

Water Division

The Water Division provides administrative, engineering, treatment, and maintenance support for the potable water gathered, sanitized, and distributed throughout the City of Vallejo and its unincorporated areas. Stringent criteria and regulations ensure that all state and federal regulations are met or exceeded. The Water Division also works with the community and local schools to provide education related to conservation and current rebate programs.
