Public Works Department

The Public Works Department protects the health and safety of the community by overseeing the operation and maintenance of the City's infrastructure. It plans and develops core infrastructure to meet the needs of the growing City of Renton.  This includes:

  • Transportation infrastructure -- a safe and reliable road system and, by working with regional transit agencies, a network of transit options.   
  • Water supply, storm drainage systems and proper disposal of wastewater.
