Welcome from the Public Works Director
John Lewis, Interim Public Works Director

Welcome to Oregon City Public Works!


We are pleased to serve Oregon City – its residents, businesses and employees, students, and visitors.  As the Public Works Director, I am very pleased to offer to the community a dedicated top-notch staff who are well-trained and committed to serving customer needs when it comes to public infrastructure and facilities.  Our job is to deliver safe and reliable sewer, storm water, transportation, and potable water systems to our users.  The Public Works staff plans, constructs, and maintains these systems with a close eye on high quality, progressive practices, controlling costs, and customer service.


We hope you will find whatever you are seeking on our web page.  We have assembled information about the department organization, details about each division, documents and standards about  which you may have interest, and updated information on construction projects around town.


We want to hear from you if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.  The best way to contact me is via email –  You may also call me at 503.657.0891.
