Public Works Agency

Proudly Serving the Santa Ana Community for over 150 years

 

The Public Works Agency is responsible for building and maintaining all public streets, storm drains, sewers, and water facilities. In addition, we coordinate the collection and recycling of refuse, sweep public streets, landscape the public right-of-way, trim trees, and remove graffiti. We ensure that the community enjoys high quality drinking water and is able to travel around the City efficiently through the use of our state-of-the-art traffic management system. We also work with neighborhood associations to resolve speeding, parking, and traffic problems and with developers to ensure that City development standards are met.
