Public Works & Utilities

The Public Works & Utilities Department is to plan, design, construct, operate, and maintain the City’s public infrastructure, facilities, and related services, including the City’s roads, airport, water service, wastewater service, stormwater management, solid waste and recycling in a safe, reliable, innovative, and efficient manner, in full compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations; and to manage City-wide-ranging environmental sustainability activities and climate change issues.

The Department is organized into six divisions: Administration, Engineering Services, Transportation Services, the Executive Airport, Utilities, and Environmental Services. While each of the six divisions serves a different function within the Department, they operate collaboratively to keep Hayward’s infrastructure and public spaces safe, clean, and green, and provide superior service to City residents, businesses, institutions, and other customers.
