County Celebrates National Public Works Week May 19-25
For more than 50 years, National Public Works Week has been recognized across the United States and Canada as a means of energizing and educating the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives. The Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services is “working for you” as they protect land, trees and water and build and maintain safe, green infrastructure across the county.
DPWES provides a wide variety of services to residents in Fairfax County. The department’s services are organized into several business areas:
- Capital Facilities
- Land Development Services
- Solid Waste Management
- Stormwater Management
- Urban Forest Management
- Wastewater Management
It is the department’s mission to enhance the quality of life and protect the public interest by establishing sound environmental policies; enforcing codes; and constructing, operating and maintaining the county’s infrastructure.
