Public Works

At South Salt Lake's Public Works Department, we build, repair and maintain public infrastructure. Our work covers City streets, sewers, stormwater systems and drinking water, among many other projects. We promote sustainable infrastructure and greener habits to conserve and protect our resources through employee training, community outreach, and public education. Our trained and experienced team works hard daily to continually improve our small city.
