As part of National Public Works Week, the Brookline Department of Public Works will be hosting its annual "DPW Open House" on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. Over 500 third grade students in the Brookline school system will have the opportunity to tour the Municipal Service Center, located at 870 Hammond Street, Brookline. Students will be touring the facility beginning at 8:30am and continuing through the school day. The DPW Open House will be extended to the public from 12:00pm-6:00pm.
Visitors will get to experience the functions of our Engineering and Transportation, Highway and Sanitation, Parks and Open Space and Water and Sewer Divisions. They will learn how to recycle, compost, plant, how street signs are made, touch the equipment and trucks used by the DPW, see the robotic sewer pipe camera in action, how to survey and lots more! Please join us for this family-friendly, hands-on event!
