In 2016, the Castle Rock Public Works Department became the 110th agency in North America to earn accreditation through the American Public Works Association. Less than 1 percent of public works agencies have earned this distinction.
Accreditation symbolizes that the department has met stringent requirements through APWA and identifies that we are doing the right things. Accreditation also identifies the department’s commitment to continual improvement to ensure that the public is receiving transportation products and services that are efficient and cost effective.
