 The Public Works Facility is located at 100 Theodore Drive.  We are located east of Plainfield Avenue and south of Oswego High School, next to the school buses.  Our hours are 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday.  Our phone number is 630-554-3242.

The Public Works Department is the behind the scenes department that keeps the Village operating. The most noticeable operations are sanitary and water supply systems which besides providing residents with clean and safe water, they maintain the 8 wells, 6 booster stations and 7 lift stations. Among the staff, 6 hold a Water Operator’s License and are responsible for collecting the required EPA water samples.

Other duties carried out by this department include, but are not limited to snow and ice removal, brush pick up, leaf removal, street sign replacement and repair, roadway patching, streetlight repair, installation and repair of water meters, water meter readings, maintaining the storm drains and sanitary lines and water lines and J.U.L.I.E. locates.

The department has on its staff 2 mechanics, a safety officer and 4 arborists. There are several employees that have been trained to observe and report on infrastructure and pavement installations for subdivisions.
