Public Works

Welcome to Public Works!  Wearing a mask inside City buildings is encouraged, but not mandatory for those who have received the COVID-19 vaccination.  Visitors who are not vaccinated are asked to please continue wearing a mask.

The Public Works Department is among the most visible of all City of Red Wing departments. All residents receiving water, sanitary sewer, and storm water services are connected with Public Works. But it doesn’t stop there.


The department’s responsibilities extend even farther, overseeing the city’s infrastructure as well as the maintenance of all:

  • Athletic fields
  • Bridges
  • Parks and trails
  • Public streets
  • Sidewalks

  • Coordination of mass transit modes
  • On street, off street parking
  • Sanitary sewer
  • Street infrastructure
  • Street lighting
  • Traffic control
  • Watermain and waste water treatment facilities
