Engineering Services

If it has to do with water, sewer or mapping, chances are it's the responsibility of Engineering Services.  In addition to the Geographic Information System and Mapping function, the Department is responsible for:

  • Flood and debris torrent control
  • Sewer systems
  • Storm water management
  • Water systems
  • Water  level control

Under the direction of Manager Brian Funke, our Engineering Services Department operates 8 small water systems, 2 sewer systems and are currently working on a number of projects.
