The Environmental Programs section of the Public Works Department develops and oversees citywide environmental programs based on City values and Federal, state and local regulatory requirements. These programs ensure the City operates in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner for the benefit of current and future residents.
The programs apply and promote sustainable policies, procedures and public education in order to foster environmental quality, economic vitality and social benefit in the program component areas of stormwater, floodplain administration, community recycling, and energy conservation, as well as other appropriate environmental programs projects, or initiatives.
