The Engineering Division is made up of a group of hardworking engineers who are responsible for all of the public contracts and construction projects that use public funds. They prepare and update the 5-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP), Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), and other Federal Funding Programs. They provide inspection services, permits, and contract administration for various projects and will provide some services to the Inland Valley Development Agency (IVDA) and Economic Development Agency (EDA) upon request. The engineering team is also responsible for the inspection and construction management and planning of maintenance projects for items such as streets, sewers, storm drains, traffic signals, and traffic signs.

FIELD INSPECTION

We have a group of highly-trained inspectors who provide services related to City improvement efforts which includes streets, sewers, and traffic signals.

 

LAND DEVELOPMENT

This Division participates in the development process by establishing improvement requirements for new projects, including site grading, drainage, and related off-site improvements within the public right-of-way. The division checks subdivision plans, parcel maps, and records of survey for conformance with the Subdivision Map Act. The public will be able to find out information regarding Parcel and Tract Maps, Lot Mergers, and Lot Line Line Adjustments. This division also manages Condition Use Permits (CUP) and Bond Release Requests.

 

NPDES

The NPDES section administers the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program for the County of San Bernardino and the San Bernardino County Flood Control District. This stormwater management program is mandated by the Federal Clean Water Act and is implemented by the State Water Resources Control Board, and has the goal of preventing pollutants from entering our lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans through stormwater runoff. Learn about the CWA
