There are three divisions in the Bartlett Public Works Department - Streets, Water and Wastewater.

Streets is the largest of the three divisions. Streets staff are responsible for maintaining the Village right-of-ways and most other Village properties, including the cemetery and commuter parking lots. Some street maintenance activities include street patching and paving, snow plowing and salting, parkway tree trimming, brush pick-up, street light maintenance and installation, roadway sign installation, tree planting, street sweeping, grass and weed cutting, street striping, landscaping, “JULIE” underground locating, maintenance of the storm sewer system, ponds, creeks, and rivers. Less visible activities include vehicle and equipment maintenance, sidewalk, bike path, and curb repairs, as well as subdivision inspections.

Water personnel are responsible for maintaining the entire water system, including wells, elevated storage towers, ground storage reservoirs, and a pump station for water purchased from the City of Elgin. Additional responsibilities include water treatment, maintenance of fire hydrants, b-boxes and valves, building and grounds maintenance, water sampling, meter installation and repair, meter reading and customer service.

The wastewater division consists of the main water reclamation plant located on Bittersweet Drive and approximately 150 miles of sanitary sewers. Employees maintain the sewers, sewage lift stations and excess flow facilities, as well as managing the water reclamation plant process and the associated equipment.
