The Esquimalt Engineering and Public Works Department maintains, upgrades and develops municipal infrastructure in a cost effective manner. 

Engineering focuses on the planning, design and project management of new infrastructure and upgrading existing infrastructure along with proposed new developments.

Public Works ensures that the existing infrastructure is maintained and operated in an effective manner as well as providing additions or improvements to existing infrastructure.

The infrastructure falls into three main groups: linear (roads, sidewalks, sewers, drains), vertical (building maintenance, signage, intersections, streetlights) and mobile (purchase and maintenance of vehicles).
