http://www.timesheraldonline.com/news/ci_2326...

Vallejo will recognize this year's Public Works Week with its second open house, a volunteer litter and weed cleanup and new student tour day.

The linchpin open house, featuring workshops, activities, information, food and giveaways, is set to run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at both the Corporation Yard at 111 Amador St., and the Water Treatment Facility, at 202 Fleming Hill Road. Guided tours of the treatment plant also will be offered, explaining the water purification process and steps taken to maintain safe drinking water.

On Monday, Vallejo students citywide also will be invited to take a field trip to learn more about the city's Public Works Department's operations and infrastructure.

Public Works Week is part of the American Public Works Association's national campaign to educate the public about the importance of Public Works in community life, according to the city.

"National Public Works Week is an opportunity for the community to honor the often unsung heroes of society -- the Public Works professionals who serve the public every day with quiet dedication," a city press release states.
