National Public Works Week, May 21 - 27
Sunday, May 21, 2023
It’s National Public Works Week! Public Works and Public Utilities keep the Town of Fuquay-Varina functioning and looking great. Learn more about the kinds of services these crews take care of...
- Maintaining sidewalks and streets
- Collecting solid waste, recycling, and yard debris
- Removing snow
- Water distribution and wastewater treatment
- Monitoring and testing water supplies
- And even more!
Much of their work is behind the scenes, before the sun comes up, and even on weekends and holidays in emergency cases, so it’s important to recognize how vital they are to keeping a Town of almost 40,000 residents up and running.
Simply put, Fuquay-Varina couldn’t function without our Public Works and Public Utilities departments. That’s why we celebrate them during National Public Works Week.

National Public Works Week
National Public Works Week (NPWW), instituted by the American Public Works Association (APWA), is an opportunity to celebrate the tens of thousands of public works professionals who maintain the infrastructure of communities across North America.
This year’s theme, “Connecting the World Through Public Works," highlights that public works connects us all, no matter where we live in the world. According to the APWA, “Every public works professional strives to improve the quality of life for the community they serve, leading to healthier, happier communities.”
