public works in action2

The Public Works Department is made up of various sub-departments including Fleet, Line Repair, Streets/Stormwater and Traffic, Wastewater, and Water. Each week, over 100 employees are responsible for the maintenance, monitoring, and improvement of existing and new infrastructure across League City which includes everything from roadways and traffic lights to storm drains, sewers, and water production.

Below are some tips and projects they are working on:

Rain Barrel Distribution Event

On Saturday June 3rd from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm the Water Production Department along with other Public Works Departments will be distributing rain barrels (approximately 300) that were previously purchased by League City residents earlier this spring. This event will take place at The Public Works Operations Center located at 1701 W. League City Parkway.

Public Works crews will assist in directing vehicles to the correct pickup location, explaining the details of installation, and loading rain barrels into vehicles for residents/customers. Proper use of these rain barrels will help in conserving water by limiting surface and groundwater usage to irrigate gardens and landscaping. If residents are unable to pick up their rain barrel, please call 281-554-1041 to arrange a pickup time for a later date.

Maintenance on Vacuum Truck

The City of League City’s vacuum truck is essential during hurricane season. Maintenance was performed to ensure it is in the best operational condition.  Staff performed a major repair welding in the debris tank, repaired a minor hydraulic leak, and performed routine maintenance. This unit is used to clean  ditches, culverts, and storm drains. We rely on these units during the aftermath of a storm to maximize our efforts allowing our systems to drain and flow freely of any debris or blockages.
