DPW in nutshell 

National Public Works Week (NPWW) is a celebration of the men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as public works. Instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association (APWA) in 1960, NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. A week is dedicated to Public Works Departments across the nation in order to enhance the prestige of the often unsung heroes of our society – the professionals who go over and beyond to serve the public good with daily dedication.

National Public Works Week is observed each year during the third full week of May. Through NPWW and other efforts, APWA seeks to raise the public’s awareness of public works services and issues and to increase confidence in the public works community and the employees who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for present and future generations.
