Do your kids love tractors and big trucks?  How about free popcorn, or dressing up with a hard hat and safety vest for a photo?  Take a field trip to City Hall for the Public Works Open House!  

The City of Chino Hills Public Works Department invites residents to stop by City Hall, located at 14000 City Center Drive, on Tuesday, May 22nd from 2:00 – 7:00 pm to learn more about the work they do in the City. The Public Works Department has operational and maintenance responsibility for water and sewer service, streets, parks, medians, slopes, open space, trees, graffiti removal, facilities, street sweeping, and storm drains. Public Works professionals will be on hand to answer residents’ questions regarding City projects, including their design and construction, as well as other services they perform on a daily basis.

Kids will enjoy sitting in the driver’s seat of a tractor or the hydro-excavator. A photo op area will be available where kids can put on a hard hat and safety vest and pose for a picture. A 30’ personnel lift, an aerial boom truck, and the Sanitation’s camera truck, which inspects sewer pipes, will be on site as well. Several large pieces of equipment will be on display to highlight a few of the many tools which are needed to keep the water flowing, the toilets flushing, the traffic moving, and the parks ready for enjoyment.

Displays will include different types of survey equipment, water service lines, metering equipment, a variety of pumps, and pipeline materials. The City’s tools and devices are operated by highly-skilled, professionals, who consider safety their highest priority. A large water model will also be on display to demonstrate how rainwater is stored in the underground aquifer. Kids can also learn about the importance of water conservation, environmental protection and water pollution prevention by watching a watershed demonstration that shows how pollutants wash into the storm drains and out to the ocean.

Free refreshments and giveaways including tote bags, ear buds, poppy seed packs, stickers, kid-friendly tattoos, and plants while supplies last. Please call (909) 364-2800 for additional information.
