The Public Works department houses Water, Waste Water, Stormwater Management and Streets.
Public Works provides high quality, safe, potable water to all Bel Aire residents; maintains the City's water infrastructure, including water towers; and works with Chisholm Creek Utility Authority and the City of Wichita to ensure no interruptions in water service.
Staff continues to provide safe waste water service to all Bel Aire residents, maintains the City's waste water infrastructure, including lift stations, and works with Chisholm Creek Utility Authority to ensure no interruptions in waste water service.
Public Works staff maintains the City’s drainage infrastructure by cleaning and repairing drainage ditches, inlets, pipes and culverts. City staff also evaluate the condition of the existing infrastructure following each storm event to ensure that the structures function as designed and make any necessary repairs as soon as possible.
Public Works maintains the City's transportation infrastructure including streets, traffic signs and signals, and works with other jurisdictions to ensure limited resources are used properly.
The City worked with Professional Engineering Consultants (PEC) to evaluate every city street in Bel Aire. Each street was given a rating based on the Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating (PASER) criteria. From that evaluation, a proposed 5-year maintenance plan was established to assist with maintaining and scheduling future street projects. You can view the interactive plan by visiting Street Evaluation and Proposed Street Maintenance Plan.
