The Department of Public Works mission is to sustain and improve the quality of life for the North Slope Borough residents by providing a wide range of cost-effective and well-coordinated essential municipal services.

The Department is organized to successfully meet its mission through the formation of seven divisions. Within the Central Office is the Administrative Division that supports all of the other divisions: Barrow Maintenance Services, Equipment Maintenance, Utilities: Water & Sewer and Power & Light, Village Services, Facility Maintenance, and Fuel/Natural Gas.
