Happy Public Works WeekMay 23, 2023
This year’s National Public Works Week is May 21st -27th, 2023. There are more than 29,000 members across the U.S. and Canada, and this week is used as an opportunity to recognize the hard work of our Public Works team and to educate the public on how Public Works affects everyone’s daily lives. The efforts of Public Works often goes unnoticed because everything is operating as expected in your life. Water is available when the tap is turned on, toilets flush, and garbage cans are returned emptied. There is often a lot of planning and obstacles our small team faces to ensure these everyday conveniences are not disrupted.
The Town’s Public Works team, also referred to as the Operations Department, maintains 168 hydrants, 45km of water mains, 14km of storm mains, and 37km of sanitary sewer mains (along with the 468 manholes that go with it.) The Operations Department has a range of backgrounds and experience with the Town ranging from 8 months to 21 years. The Town of Pincher Creek Operations Department consists of a Director (Alexa), Manager (Cory), Coordinators (Jim & Phil), an Asset Management Coordinator (Lukas), Water Treatment Plant Operators (Darcy & Dane), Facility Maintenance (Blake), Maintenance Workers (Brad, Michael, and Ashley), and an Administrative Assistant (Lindsey). Together, we strive to ensure the Public Works needs of the community are addressed in an efficient manner so everyone can go about their normal lives.
