Public Works Construction Standards


Public Works Construction StandardsGovernments exist to protect the health, safety and welfare of its citizens. Whether it be providing roads for safe and efficient mobility, utilities for clean drinking water and removal of waste, parks for recreation, or storm water management for protection from flooding, public works is the backbone of that existence. Management of public works facilities is a very important component of the responsibilities of cities, counties, and special districts across North Central Texas. The quality of the region’s infrastructure (its roads, water distribution, wastewater collection, and storm drainage systems) has always been a high priority and a source of pride for its communities.

For over 30 years NCTCOG has supported the public works industry in North Central Texas through publication and maintenance of Public Works Construction Standards - North Cental Texas. To order yours, go here: STANDARDS [PDF].
