The Pubic Works Department's primary functions are to maintain the municipal roads, water and drainage systems. Accordingly, the Department is comprised of three principal divisions; Roads, Water and Drainage.
The Roads Division primarily takes care of road maintenance (loose-top and hard-top), sidewalk repairs, signage, culvert maintenance, limited equipment maintenance and winter control. The Township is responsible for maintaining approximately 40 kilometers of paved roads and 408 kilometers of gravel roads.
The Water Division is responsible for maintaining the Township’s water distribution system including repairs to water lines, valves, services to property and hydrants. The division also flushes the system and undertakes valve exercising and water quality testing. The water distribution system has been extended over the past 16 years and now comprises a system over 135 kilometers in length.
The Drainage Division is responsible for the maintenance, repair, and improvement of all municipal drains within the Township limits.
