Engineering Department

The Engineering Department prepares contract drawings and specifications for replacement sewers, local storm relief measures, and for sewer extensions. The Principal Sanitary Engineer and her administrative staff direct the management of all construction projects, coordinating all phases with consulting firms, contractors, and related City, County, and State agencies. The Field Party verifies grades, elevations, utility locations, and other field measurements necessary for design. It is the task of the Engineering Department to manage all projects, handling the preparation of contract documents, inspection of work in progress, ultimately supervising and approving all stages until project closeout.


Catherine Knab, P.E., Principal Sanitary Engineer
