The Grimes Public Works Department takes pride in serving the people of Grimes. The department is responsible for managing the many important infrastructure systems throughout the community. Public Works serves the community through its Streets, Water/Wastewater, Stormwater departments as well as maintenance of City parks.
The City of Grimes currently operates and maintains its own wastewater treatment facility, but has joined the Des Moines Wastewater Reclamation Authority. The City of Grimes plans to deconstruct its wastewater treatment plant after the WRA connection is completed.
