National Public Works Week - May 20-26

Public Works organizations create and maintain our community infrastructures. Public Works Week celebrates vital and sustainable water, transportation, waste and environmental treasure across California

Find green business solutions
National Public Works Week (NPWW) is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works.

We appreciate the ongoing innovation and public arteries of our cities and countryside by the often–unsung heroes of our society–the professionals who serve the public good every day with quiet dedication.

The American Public Works Association (APWA) calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. The professionals in public works agencies and supporting companies provide systems for transportation, water resources, energy, waste management, and the environmental infrastructure. Roles are widely varied and changing as science and public policies change. A few of the leadership roles in public works include:

  • Engineering and Technology
  • Facilities and Grounds
  • Public Fleets
  • Public Right-of-Way
  • Emergency Management
  • Solid Waste
  • Transportation
  • Water Resources
  • Environmental infrastructure
The American Public Works Association is an international educational and professional association of public agencies, private sector companies, and individuals dedicated to providing high quality public works goods and services.

California branches of the APWA include:

APWA San Diego Chapter

APWA Ventura Chapter

APWA Central California Chapter

APWA Northern California Chapter

Southern California Chapter
