The Town of Pulaski Engineering Department functions similar to a private consulting engineering firm as it provides engineering and surveying services to all the Town’s various departments. Whether the project included water lines or water tanks, sewer lines or bridges and roads, the Engineering Department has probably been a ‘behind the scenes player’ in the project. These items are commonly referred to as infrastructure and are critical to the well being of a community. Much of the Engineering Department’s time is spent on designing or recommending improvements to these facilities. The Town’s Engineering Department also provides physical inspection of it’s two dams and the many bridges and box culverts that are a part of the Town’s transportation network.
Maintaining up to date maps for the Town that include streets, house numbers, water lines, sewer lines and zoning is an important on going function of this department. This has become an automated process where these drawings are stored and continually updated on the Town’s computer system using current AutoCad and GIS software. The Engineering Department also uses the latest in software to operate a computer program that simulates actual conditions and effects of proposed changes in the water system.
Coordination between the Town and State agencies such as the Virginia Department of Health, Department of Environmental Quality and the Virginia Department of Transportation is handled through the Town Engineering Department. This helps to provide a safer, more environmentally sound community for Town citizens to live and work.
From this brief description you can see that the focus of the Engineering Department is to provide services that add to the quality of life in the Town of Pulaski.
