The City's Engineering staff plans and designs future improvements to the City’s infrastructure and performs related analyses for the City’s existing systems. Staff also manages regulatory permits and programs for both the sewer and storm drainage collection systems, and reviews and manages any impacts that growth or development may have on the City's various public works systems. In doing so, we also enforce local, state, and federal water pollution regulations to maintain compliance locally. Our goals are to maintain the City’s infrastructure (streets, buildings, sewers, storm drains, etc.) at an acceptable level of quality while promoting pollution prevention and clean waterways, maintaining regulatory compliance, and protecting the environment and the public.
Engineering staff can answer your questions about City infrastructure and design standards; surveying information; lot lines/subdivisions; special assessment districts; parcel information; City streets, sewers and storm drains; Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP); and the regional storm water program, pollution prevention and regulatory requirements. We also provide services to businesses, engineers, architects, developers, construction professionals, homeowners, and the public to assist with issues pertaining to the City’s sanitary sewer and storm drainage collection systems and storm water environmental compliance. Find out more below in "What We Do", or contact us by phone or email.

What We Do
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) provides for new construction, expansion, renovation, replacement, upgrade, or rehabilitation of a fixed object or asset (such as storm drains, streets, or public buildings), with an anticipated life exceeding one year, and a cost exceeding $10,000. CIP designates infrastructure projects to be funded through the general fund, gas tax revenues (for street projects), sewer fees, parking revenue (for parking projects), and other special revenue or grant programs.

The Engineering office manages the Neighborhood Improvement Program (NIP) which includes the NIP Committee's selection of projects each year for recommendation to City Council for approval of the annual budget. More about the NIP...
The Engineering office oversees the City’s Pavement Management Program. More information on this program will be posted soon.
There are approximately 104 miles of sanitary sewer and 2,300 structures, including 7 lift stations. Each asset is routinely inspected, evaluated, and placed into a renewal and replacement program to ensure the City can provide reliable services in the future.

We manage and administer the City’s Storm Water Permit, which is regulated by the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. In accordance with the permit, we implement and enforce the City’s Storm Water Ordinance locally, and implement pollution prevention tasks and efforts citywide. These program elements include local, State, and Federal water quality regulations related to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Clean Water Act (CWA), National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and California Porter-Cologne Act. Working collaboratively, we’re also a managing partner in the Monterey Regional Storm Water Management Program, a consortium of local governments who work together to implement pollution prevention and cost-sharing efforts regionally.
