The Department of Public Works (DPW) provides essential services such as roads, water, sanitation, drainage, solid waste, and facility construction. These services require the active support of all DPW employees. To provide uninterrupted service, the department will continue to be available by appointment, website or telephone to meet the needs of the community and the department’s employees.
Issues may be reported through My Santa Cruz County. In addition, many services (e.g., sewer permits, survey information) are offered online and most questions can be answered by phone. Please call 831-454-2160 for assistance as this may eliminate the need to visit DPW’s facilities. The Buena Vista Landfill and Ben Lomond Transfer Station remain open with modified hours for essential disposal needs.
Most Sanitation permits can be delivered to the project by our inspector.
