Public Works staff provide residents and businesses with clean drinking water, safe collection of wastewater, clear passageways of streets, reliable flood protection, beautiful parks, groomed athletic fields and recreational facilities, comfortable building spaces, and cost-effective, sustainable solutions for long-term performance and delivery of these services. Click here for an overview of services provided by the Public Works Department.

The value of Mounds View's current infrastructure easily exceeds $100 million. This value represents today's dollars' cost to replace the existing public works infrastructure. Most of this infrastructure was initially built in the 1960s and 1970s. Therefore, it is imperative that periodic inspections, proper treatment, and performance monitoring are conducted to extend its useful life as long as practical.

  • Administration
  • Engineering
  • Operations & Maintenance
All divisions work closely together to ensure the infrastructure is reliable, efficient, and provides the lowest life cycle cost.
