Engineering & Public Works

The Engineering and Public Works Department plans, designs, constructs, operates and maintains the core service systems that supply water for drinking and firefighting, collects and disposes of sanitary sewage and drainage, manages the solid waste collection contract, as well as provides multi-modal transportation facilities, including roads, bridges, walkways, street lighting and traffic signal systems. The Department also maintains the corporate fleet that includes passenger vehicles, trucks, construction equipment, and small operating equipment.

To meet the needs of the citizens of Coquitlam, the Engineering and Public Works Department is comprised of the following divisions:

  • Design and Construction
  • Environmental Services
  • Infrastructure Planning
  • Public Works
  • Transportation

Engineering and Public Works conducts studies and plans, coordinates and implements the capital works program as it relates to the provision of transportation, drainage, water and sewer systems. The Department also maintains record drawings and high quality maps of the City. The Coquitlam Engineering and Public Works Department was the first agency in Canada accredited by the American Public Works Association in 1998. Building on the same principles the Department continually improves its asset management plans and practices to expand the lifecycle of the engineering and public works assets.

Engineering and Public Works also integrates responsibility for the City’s environmental services, including: energy management and climate action; development and implementation of environmental programs, policies and objectives; City-wide waste reduction and collection; water conservation; and environmental protection.
