Department of Public Works

The Claremont Department of Public Works is the custodian of the City's physical infrastructures and facilities. Such infrastructure has been developed or acquired throughout the years to provide transportation systems, water and wastewater systems, solid waste disposal, and cemeteries. As such, these systems facilitate the achievement of common, social, and economic objectives for the citizens of Claremont. The mission of the Public Works Department is to fully maintain all aspects of the City’s infrastructure, physical plant and equipment. We are committed to this mission and quality workmanship, while exercising overall fiscal responsibility.

The quick change of temperature, very high water table, rain in the forecast and amount of freeze thaw cycles we had this winter has caused the dirt roads to become almost impassable today. 
Please be patient as we can only patch the roads during this season. The weather early next week goes below freezing and thaws later in the week so this situation will happen again. This same thing happens under paved road so the structure is fragile.
