The streets we drive on, delivery of our drinking water, and drainage into our creeks and river are all managed by Public Works. Public Works has approximately 85 dedicated employees who maintain and protect existing public infrastructure in the City of Steamboat Springs.
The department reviews proposals for new infrastructure during development, manages various capital projects and handles all snowplowing, sewer collection, waste water treatment, street reconstruction and maintenance.
If you anticipate needing permanent power, a certificate of occupancy (CO) or water and/or sewer service, especially during the winter months, schedule your project so that the grading and drainage improvements and utility installations are complete and inspected before November 1. Don’t get caught by the snow!
To avoid potential citation in the spring, make sure that all erosion and sediment control devices are installed and correctly functioning prior to snow fall.
Following a few simple guidelines will set projects up for a successful winter season and ensure work completed does not hinder city operations or result in additional costs for homeowners and businesses.
