This division of Public Works provides maintenance services for the City's infrastructure (streets, sidewalks, water, sewer, storm drains).  Operations and Maintenance also provides internal support for maintenance of City owned facilities and equipment.  The following make up this division:

Street Maintenance - City crews maintain and improve city streets, shoulders, alleys, sidewalks, street signs, traffic markings, signal control devices, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, roadside vegetation, and public right-of-way street lighting.
Storm and Surface Water Utility - The Edmonds storm drainage system is composed of streams, lakes, wetlands, storm detention sistes, pipes and ditches - all of which outfall to the Puget Sound.  City crews perform maintenance and repairs to the entire system to reduce flooding, improve water quality and preserve the environment.  These maintenance activities include inspection and cleaning of catch basins, street sweeping, emergency flooding response, creek maintenance, inspection and monitoring of private stormwater detention systems, and minor capital improvement project construction.
Water Utility / Drinking Water Quality - City crews are responsible for the maintenance and operation of the City's water distribution system for a constant and safe delivery of potable water to over 9,700 accounts. 
Wastewater / Sewer Utility - Water and sanitary waste that leaves the inside of your home or business enters the Edmonds sewer system and flows through city-owned and maintained pipes into the Edmonds and Lynnwood Wastewater Treatment Plants.  City staff provides maintenance and repair of City systems to ensure federal and state standards are met for water quality, plant-generated air, effluent, and solids.
Garbage, Recycling, and Waste Prevention - Private hauling companies provide curbside garbage collection, recycling and yard waste services.  The waste prevention and recycling program includes public education and awareness of all aspects of solid waste management.  For more information call Steve Fisher, the Recycling Coordinator at 425.771.0235 or email to recycleguy@ci.edmonds.wa.us
Facilities Maintenance - City staff is responsible for 20 major buildings in the City.  Staff performs custodial, maintenance and capital construction activities in an effort to provide a safe, clean, and healthy environment.
Fleet Maintenance - The Fleet Division staff of three manage the purchasing, maintenance and surplus of over 165 pieces of equipment, including city vehicles for various City departments ... Public Works, Parks and Recreation, Community Services and Police.
