Public Works Department
The City of Tumwater Public Works Department provides services that we all use every day... from quality drinking water at home to the trails, sidewalks and streets we travel throughout the City. Public Works is here day and night helping to keep Tumwater’s residents, businesses and visitors safe, and ensuring these vital services continue throughout our City. The Public Works Department is comprised of two divisions: Engineering, and Operations and Maintenance.
The Engineering Division, located downstairs in City Hall, 555 Israel Road SW, is responsible for the overall management of the capital projects in the Capital Facilities Plan and the administrative aspects of the transportation and utility systems.
