Fulton County Celebrates National Public Works Week 2023

May 19, 2023
Public Works highlights how it works to connect residents with the services it provides.

The Fulton County Public Works Department will observe National Public Works Week May 21 – 27, 2023, by highlighting its staff and the services provided. This year’s theme, "Connecting the World Through Public Works," demonstrates how public works professionals work to link consumers to its services.

“Every Fulton County public works professional connects each of us physically, through infrastructure, and inspirationally, through service to the communities,” said Director of Public Works David Clark.

“Public Works Week is a time for us to stop and recognize the men and women who work every day to ensure the foundation of our infrastructure. We also will highlight the day-to-day comfort that is provided to the communities depending on us. It is also a time for us to say thank you to those who make it all happen.”

Considered one of the premier agencies in the State of Georgia, the Fulton County Department of Public Works maintains sanitary sewer and water distribution systems. The dedicated award-winning team also provides stormwater management and transportation services within the Fulton Industrial District, airport services at the Fulton County Executive Airport at Brown Field, and water and pollution prevention education throughout the communities in Fulton County.

In celebration of Public Works Week 2023, the department was also recognized for the invaluable job it does with the presentation of a proclamation during the Board of Commissioners Meeting on Wednesday, May 17.

The team will host the Public Works Division Exhibit on Wednesday, May 24, in the Atrium area of the Government Center, 141 Pryor Street in downtown Atlanta. From 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., Public Works will present hands on exhibits to illustrate how each division works.

On Tuesday, May 23, the Department also offers public tours of two wastewater facilities, Camp Creek and the Johns Creek Environmental Campus. To register, click here
