ANAHEIM, CA-- The Orange County's Public Works Department will be recognized for receiving its national professional accreditation by the American Public Works Association (APWA) today at 5 p.m. at the Anaheim Convention Center, Ballroom Level Three, as part of the 2012 APWA Congress.
On May 14, 2012, OC Public Works received the news that their OC Engineering Division had become APWA's 81st accredited agency and the tenth agency in California to have achieved this honor. Orange County joins only two other counties in California – Contra Costa and San Francisco that have achieved accreditation.
The OC Engineering Division was engaged in the American Public Works Association (APWA) Accreditation Program for 18 months. The APWA's Accreditation Program is an 18-24 month, self-motivated process that provides public works agencies with a way to compare their policies, procedures, and practices with those identified by nationally recognized public works experts. Full accreditation signifies that, on a daily basis, an agency meets or exceeds standards of performance in areas such as engineering, street/drainage, construction, emergency response, maintenance, surveying and traffic operations.
