Engineering Department



Vision Statement 

The Engineering/Construction Management Division is focused on project and program support of activities that are primarily in the public right-of-way. Such activities usually deal with public infrastructure such as roads, streets, bridges, and utility lines and waterways. The Engineering and Construction Management staff review and approve all new residential development improvements for conformance to the City of Lincoln Improvement Standards and Design Criteria, links to both documents are below. Staff also review and impose "conditions of approval" for all new private development projects related to improvements within the public right-of-way as well as on-site grading and drainage. Other duties include review and approve for filing with Placer County all final maps and parcel maps and all accompanying legal documents.

Inspection Services
The Public Services Department inspects the installation of sewer main lines, laterals, and manholes; storm drain main lines, laterals, inlets, and manholes; water main lines and service lines; and fire hydrants, blow-offs, air release valves, and water tanks.

The Department also inspects the installation of curb, gutters, and sidewalks and checks the subgrade, aggregate base grade, and pavement. Inspectors review each project’s storm water pollution prevention plan to be sure it has been installed as specified by the plan, monitor construction water use, and ensure construction site cleanliness is maintained.
