 "We Are Here to Serve You"


Public Works & Utilities serves a growing population of over 40,000 residents and businesses.

The Department is responsible for a wide range of infrastructure maintenance, operations, and civil engineering services to our citizens involving street transportation and traffic control, storm runoff and surface water management, drinking water distribution, sewage collection and conveyance, and wastewater treatment.  

The Department also provides many critical internal services for the organization such as the maintenance of City buildings and facilities as well as the management of a diverse fleet of light and heavy equipment and vehicles.

These services are provided through the department's seven functional divisions operating out of the Public Works Operations & Maintenance Center, the regional Edmonds Wastewater Treatment Plant, and the second floor of City Hall.

How do I report a street light problem?

If the problem street light is within the City of Edmonds, please try and write down the Street Light Number (S-xxxxx) found on the underside of the light head and the physical address of the street light, then provide this information to Public Works customer service at (425) 771-0235 or pw@edmondswa.gov.  The Snohomish County PUD requires that the City provide the Street Light Number to correctly identify the problem street light and to ensure a timely repair.
