Public Works

The Department of Public Works is responsible for day-to-day maintenance and repair of city property and equipment and works with developers and property owners in addressing utility issues, public improvements, and property development, and follows a strict set of standards and specifications for improving and maintaining the City of Enterprise. From the water system, to the sewer plant operation, the crew is responsible for maintaining city streets, right of way, and parks. The Enterprise Public Works department consists of three Maintenance Workers, a Sewer Plant Operator, a Sewer Plant Assistant Operator, and a Public Works Director.

Water/Sewer Department

The Water Department’s primary responsibility is to provide residents with clean, safe drinking water.  The Sewer Department’s responsibility is to keep the collection lines flowing and treat the sewage at the treatment plant.

Storm Sewers

The Sewer Department cleans the sewer lines on a yearly basis and as needed after routine inspections. The Sewer Department cleans catch basins bi-annually, and on an as–needed basis.
