Announced to the media today by the City of Billings Public Works Project & Communications Coordinator Xiaoyi Wang, the Billings Public Works is hosting "Public Works Week" across the City of Billings.

What is Public Works Week?

It isn't ACTUALLY a whole week locally, however, it is celebrated nationally from May 20th through May 24th. Our local events are taking place across two days, May 22nd & May 23rd.

Families and community members are invited to step behind the scenes of the Billings Public Works Department to witness firsthand the "magic" that keeps Billings running smoothly.

Have you ever thought... "Huh... I know the water just comes out of the tap when I turn it on... but how?" Well, our local leaders are ready to educate you all about it! You'll learn how it gets from the Yellowstone River to your tap, and all the steps in between.
