The Public Works Department Engineering Division is responsible for the review and approval of all plans and specifications and monitoring of new construction projects for Randolph County. This includes preparation of cost estimates, supervision of the letting of all contracts for design and construction, the inspection and acceptance of all work and materials used in construction or renovation.
The Engineering division of Public Works has also been working very closely with the Board of Commissioners to develop an aggressive 10-year strategic countywide water plan for Randolph County. This plan will provide improved economic development opportunities, solutions to groundwater concerns, and drought management issues.

The environment and pollution affects the quality of life of all of us and is of global concern. The Randolph County Public Works Department provides services to protect our environment from illegal littering through the operation of three Convenience Sites and the opportunity for any Randolph County citizen to report illegal litter activity.
Once the Solid Waste Inspector has received a report of illegal litter activity, he will visually inspect the site and hopefully will find a means of tracing the person responsible. The person responsible will then be contacted to clean up and correct any damage caused by improper disposal in accordance with North Carolina State laws. If the person doing the illegal littering cannot be found, either the property owner, the Department of Transportation or the County, cleans the site.
The Public Works Department
maintains Recycling/Convenience sites throughout the county collecting
residential recyclable materials that are voluntarily delivered by the citizens
of Randolph County. These sites contain labeled collection bins.
Education is key to raising awareness and
producing environmentally conscious children and adults. The Public
Works Department promotes recycling, reducing and reusing in programs presented
in the Randolph County Schools and other civic groups upon request. For
