We enhance Clark County's quality of life by providing transportation, environmental, and parks facilities and services.
Clark County Public Works has received many questions from neighbors regarding efforts to reduce the risk of wildfires at Camp Bonneville. The county has worked in coordination with the Washington State Department of Ecology and the Washington State Department of Natural Resources to mitigate these risks. Some of this work includes establishing perimeter roads and fire breaks, having an agreement for Helitak resources to be onsite five months out of the year, paying the fire protection assessment, and important forest management work like thinning, pruning and fuel-reduction burning. For more details on the county’s work to reduce the risk of wildfires at Camp Bonneville, please reference this Memo to County Manager.

Public Work publishes Community Report
A 48-page report loaded with information and photos about services Clark County Public Works provides to the community is available for public use.
The report includes pages about Clean Water, Vegetation Management, Road Maintenance, Traffic Signals, Summer Road Preservation and other services provided by the department's 300-plus employees.
The report contains information about a couple specific road projects, but much of the report is general in nature to ensure it has a longer shelf life.
