Public Works


Welcome to the Little Elm Public Works Department, an American Public Works Accredited Agency. We are here to help you and help to maintain the Town’s infrastructure. 

The Public Works Department is responsible for six divisions: 

  • Stormwater Operations
  • Streets
  • Waste Water Collections
  • Waste Water Treatment
  • Fleet
  • Water Division (water operations, water quality)
  • Solid Waste (trash, recycling)

What Does American Public Works Association Accreditation mean?

The purpose of the APWA accreditation program is to provide a means of formally verifying and recognizing public works agencies for compliance with the recommended practices outlined in the Public Works Management Practices Manual. It is a voluntary, self-motivated approach to objectively evaluate, verify, and recognize compliance with the recommended management practices. 

The objectives of the accreditation program are to:

  • Create impetus for organization self-improvement and stimulate general raising of standards
  • Offer a voluntary evaluation and education program rather than government-regulated activity
  • Recognize good performance and motivate to maintain and improve performance
  • Improve performance and the provision of services
  • Increase professionalism
  • Instill pride among agency staff, elected officials, and the local community
