About Kentwood Department of Public Works 

The Department of Public Works helps keep our City beautiful and functional. The Department maintains dozens of miles of pipes underground and hundreds of miles of streets above ground. We are responsible for keeping the streets clean, the snow plowed and parks maintained. Additionally, we service City vehicles like police cruisers and fire trucks. 

We are also responsible for maintaining the City's drinking water. The Water & Sewer Division maintains water storage tanks, pumping facilities and distribution piping, as well as sanitary sewage collection system piping.
