Instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association in 1960, NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. This week seeks to enhance the prestige of the public works and the professionals who serve the public good every day with quiet dedication.
Take a moment to reflect on what Northampton Public Works provides 24/7/365 to its citizens and businesses; high quality drinking water, treatment of wastewater, parks and recreational fields, cemeteries, roadways, sidewalks, railtrails, snow and ice control, traffic signals, solid waste disposal and recycling, stormwater and flood control systems to name a few. This year’s theme, because of Public Works is particularly true for Northampton Public Works. Look around your community and see how Public Works serves you. The staff care deeply about serving the City and take great pride in their work.
Tours of the following City Facilities will be given to the public on Tuesday, May 21st and Thursday, May 23rd at 9:00 a.m.
Water Treatment Plant (137 Mountain Street, Haydenville)
Waste Water Treatment Plant and Flood Control (33 Hockanum Road, Northampton)
