The Engineering and Construction programs develop, and improve county roads and utilities through acquisition and management of right of way, design, and construction of roadway, bridges, drainage and utility systems. The Development Review (DR) section is responsible for ensuring that development is done correctly and does not adversely effect county infrastructure.


ENGINEERING & CONSTRUCTION

  • Develop, and improve county roads and utilities through acquisition and management of right of way, design, and construction of roadway, bridges, drainage and utility systems.
  • Provide programming of future improvements and engineering studies as needed to provide quality customer service and maximize the effects of funds available by identifying infrastructure projects necessary to meet the needs in developing areas of the county.
  • Utilize a ‘cradle-to-grave’ concept whereby the project team stays with the project and manages its projects completely through the construction phase.

DEVELOPMENT REVIEW

  • Responsible for ensuring that development is done per county codes and ordinances.

NATURAL RESOURCES SERVICES  

  •  Ensures County compliance with the EPA-issued MS4 Storm water permit and with NMED Drinking Water Regulations. Educates through outreach programs, construction and storm water pollution control, post-construction stormwater pollution control, good housekeeping/pollution prevention, illicit discharge, public involvement, stormwater monitoring, and floatable control.  (Stormwater)
  •  Issues permits, inspects, and enforces the county’s Well and Wastewater Ordinance, Drinking Water Compliance, and Household Hazardous Waste Program (Permit and Review)
  • Participates in regional water planning, performs hydrogeologic studies, and educates the public about water resource issues through the Domestic Water Level Program, aquifer science, legacy environmental sites, and other environment support services (Groundwater)
  • Develops regional water planning, implements water conservation incentives programs, enforces the Water Conservation Ordinance, educates public about water resource issues, monitor water conservation at County facilities, and administers County water rights (Water Conservation)
  • Provides low income assistance for access to water and wastewater utilities (PIPE and TANK)
 

Transportation Planning

  • Prepares long-range transportation plans and integrated corridor sector development plans including
    updates to the Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety Action Plan, ADA Transition Plan, and other
    transpiration-related design guidance.
  • Coordinates with local and regional planning agencies such as the Mid Region Council of Governments
    and the Rio Metro Regional Transit District.
  • Identifies transportation project funding priorities through the Capital Improvement Program (CIP),
    Infrastructure Capital Improvement Program (ICIP), Transportation Improvement Program (TIP),
    participates in various transportation project grant funding opportunities.
  • Reviews development site plans and proposals related to the transportation network including traffic
    impact studies and makes recommendations for infrastructure improvements and mitigation measures.
