Nampa Celebrates National Public Works Week

The American Public Works Association has designated May 15 to 21 as National Public Works Week. The city of Nampa will join the celebration with interactive fairs for Nampa School District students on May 18.

The day will start at 9 a.m. with Iowa Elementary School’s fourth grade field trip to the street division yard and wastewater treatment plant. Students will have the chance to explore construction equipment, traffic signal boxes, fire hydrants and vehicles from the city fleet. Students will also learn about the water cycle, where wastewater goes and how it is treated by touring the Nampa Wastewater Treatment Plant.

In the afternoon, students from Union High School will learn about careers in public works through similar interactive demonstrations and tours. The general public is invited to the afternoon fair that will start at the streets yard, 106 W. Railroad St. at 1:00 p.m. The wastewater treatment plant tour begins at 1:45 p.m. at 340 W. Railroad St.

National Public Works Week is observed each year during the third full week of May to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works in their daily lives. To learn more about Nampa’s Public Works Department visit www.cityofnampa.us/publicworks.
