The Public Works Department responsibilities include maintenance and improvements to infrastructure including water/sewer lines, pavement, sidewalks, and curbing, maintaining rights of way, town buildings, grounds, parks, streets, as well as wastewater collection inside the corporate limits of Biscoe.
The Town of Biscoe recently spent $2.1 million to upgrade out Wastewater Treatment plant; as well as $2.3 million to extended water lines across Interstate 73/74 to open up that area for growth.
The Public Works Departments consists of 6 full-time positions and 2 part-time positions. These employees are responsible for the repair and maintenance of our Town’s infrastructure. This consists of 11.58 miles of street maintenance, approximately 900 water/sewer customers (residential and non-residential), 14 miles of water mains and 22 miles of sewer lines, 8 miles of force main, and 10 pump stations. And a 0.6 MGD Wastewater Treatment Plan. All of this takes place within a square mile radius. They must be extremely versatile and be able to respond to any emergency, as the situation deems itself necessary. From burst water lines to burst sewer lines, they are the people responsible for keeping the Town open and working for all of our citizens.
The Town Public Works Department also collects and properly disposes yard waste. Additionally, Public Works is responsible for storm debris collection and disposal should there be any weather-related event.
Funding for the Public Works Department comes from local, state, and federal agencies.
