Division Responsibilities

The Engineering Public Services Division assists the public by responding to customer visits, phone calls, and inquiries regarding permits, plan-checking fees, filing procedures, permit status, meter sales, meter costs, and lateral costs.  Staff administers all plan-checking submittals for potable water, recycled water, and sewer applications for approval, cellular lease agreements, fire service, backflow inspections, project deposits, and invoicing.  Staff also provides inspections to private developer funded projects and the District’s Capital Improvement Projects, easement and encroachment enforcements, and survey and utility mark-outs of District facilities and GPS plots.  Once bid, the Construction staff provides construction management for the projects.
