Public Works Education Opportunities & Resources

The Davenport Public Works Department provides limited educational activities and classroom support, with a focus on water quality, stormwater and wastewater to protect our community‚Äôs natural resources and foster behavior change for the future of our community. 

Current programming includes:

  • Our annual Community Showcase.
  • Engineering Merit Badge Clinic (offered every other year), tentatively scheduled for February 2018.
  • Forestry Merit Badge Clinic (offered every other year), scheduled for Saturday, April 14th, 2018.

In addition to natural resource and public works education noted above, the department may provide other natural resource or mission aligned public works and public works career exploration related presentations, tours, and teacher professional development opportunities* as staffing levels are able to support.
