The Engineering Division is responsible for maintaining a high quality of life in Crystal Lake by ensuring that the City’s infrastructure is serving the public’s needs. The Engineering Division works with residents and developers to provide technical guidance related to City standards for traffic and drainage in order to ensure that these systems are planned and constructed properly. The Engineering Division accomplishes this by reviewing proposed developments to ensure they provide adequate means of handling stormwater runoff and traffic, designing improvements to existing facilities, and helping maintain our existing infrastructure so that these facilities continue to serve the public into the future. Specific projects that the Engineering Division oversees include:
Please contact the Engineering Division for concerns with drainage, flooding, traffic, infrastructure, and street lights.
