Environmental Services provides a number of services to improve the daily life and safety of our community.
Our Watershed Management team inspects and maintains a system of drains, pipes, culverts and ponds to ensure flood protection and proper drainage, as well as to reduce pollution runoff. We undertake stream restoration and reforestation projects to help protect and improve our local waterways. This ensures we comply with state and federal regulations to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay, the Potomac River and local streams. Staff also take steps to ensure county-owned and state regulated dams are safe and functional properly to prevent flooding concerns.
Our Mosquito and Forest Pest Management team works vigilantly to safeguard residents from the spread of mosquito borne diseases such as Zika and West Nile Virus. We use a variety of pest management strategies including monitoring, larvaciding and spraying. We also continuously monitor for and battle numerous forest pests, such as Emerald Ash Borers and Gypsy Moths, that threaten our forest resources.
Our Construction Services team undertakes large and small projects for watershed, transportation, and parks capital projects. By completing the work with in-house talent, we can help keep costs down and ensure work is done on time. We also create and install street name signs, as well as replace missing or damaged signs.
Our staff is dedicated to providing outstanding service to improve and protect Prince William County. Please visit our pages to learn more about our work and projects.
