Engineering is a Division of the City of Gloucester Department of Public Works. The Engineering Division is led by the City Engineer who reports to the Director of Public Works. Engineering provides assistance to other DPW Divisions, as well as other City Departments (such as Inspectional Services, Conservation, Planning, Fire, Police, etc.) on an as requested basis. Our principal duties involve Drainage & Grading Plan Reviews; coordination of GIS efforts associated with DPW operations, particularly water and sewer; and archival oversight of infrastructure related plans and records. Research assistance is provided to the public on street layouts, sanitary sewer lines and storm drains, field surveys, bench marks, street histories, and other infrastructure related questions.
