May 17-23, 2020 is National Public Works Week
(SPRING HILL, TENN - May 17, 2020) This week we honor all of our Public Works staff and employees who together make our City run smoothly. With the recent rash of severe weather, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent social distancing guidelines put into place by the Governor, the Public works staff have been working full-throttle through these challenges for the past two months and we appreciate all of their hard work and diligence.
The City of Spring Hill’s Public Works has four Departments:
Each department is intricately linked with each other and serves multiple functions enabling the City to run efficiently. The Streets and Highways Department repairs our roads and sidewalks and mows all City-owned areas. This Department also picks up citizens’ brush and bulky items as a free service to the citizens. The City’s mechanics help keep our vehicles in shape for every department citywide.
The Stormwater Department maintains drainage areas in City rights-of-way and abides by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s (TDEC) regulations to meet all of our permitting requirements. This Department participates in community outreach programs that educate citizens, teaching them what stormwater does for our environment.
The Water Distribution Department is responsible for all of the water lines and water meters that transport water from the lines to your homes and businesses. Back flow prevention and utility locating also fall under this department’s responsibilities, as well as repairing broken water lines.
The Sewer Collections Department maintains all sewer lines and manholes within the City. The Department also tests inflow & infiltration (I & I) to determine if water is leaking into the sewer system and if so, it is then repaired in-house.
The City’s Utility Inspectors oversee and ensure that all utilities are installed correctly in the ground while developments are being built per approved construction plans. They work closely with all Public Works departments.
If you see any of these employees this week, please give them a big “Thank You!” for helping to keep our City running daily!
