Public Works Day

Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 8:30am to 1:30pm

Check out some cool equipment and learn more about Public Works on May 18!

Do you know how water get to your tap and where does it go after it goes down the drain? Do you know who keeps our roads and bridges safe and reliable? How about who plans traffic signal timing and determines speed limits and those markings all over the pavement? 

The City’s Public Works Department provides services that you enjoy every day... from getting quality water at your house to maintaining your street. Public Works work day and night to keep city residents safe and ensures the continuation and improvement of these vital services.

On May 18, opening day of the Lake Oswego Farmers' Market, stop by the Public Works booth at the lower Millennium Plaza Park fountain and learn about services that affect your health, safety, comfort and overall quality of life. Plus, check out some heavy equipment including the City's new street sweeper (recently named Oscar - the “Oswego Sweeper Car”) and the new Emergency Mobile Water Treatment trailer! In addition, you can learn more about major projects, such as the Lake Oswego Tigard Water Project and plans for the water treatment plant.

Celebrate Public Works Week, May 19 to 25, 2013!
