National Public Works Week
Sunday, May 16, 2021
Since 1960, APWA has sponsored National Public Works Week. Across the nation, our more than 30,000 members use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of the contribution of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating the heart of our local communities and building the quality of life.
National Public Works Week also serves as a time to recognize the contributions of public works professionals who design, build, plan, operate, and maintain the transportation, water supply, water treatment and solid waste disposal systems, public buildings, and other structures and facilities essential to our nation’s economy and way of life. Their dedication and expertise at all levels of government and the private sector are a capital investment in the economic growth, development—and ultimate stability—of the nation
