Public Works

The Pierce Public Works Department cares for and maintains water, sewer, streets, and parks.

Our goal is to provide good preventative maintenance to our Town’s assets, as well as quick, safe and reliable responses to the unforeseen needs of the Town.

In case of an emergency in regards to water, sewer, or streets,please contact Town Hall @ 970-834-2851  Monday thru Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, Sunday or holidays, please contact Weld County Dispatch Center at 970-350-9600 option #4.

Water

 North Weld Water District supplies the Town with treated water. All potable water meets the strict regulations and requirements of the Federal Governments Safe Drinking Water Act. The Town of Pierce has about seven (7) miles of water mains running under its streets with meters at each tap.  

Sewer

 The Town's sewer system consists of an estimated 10,000 linear feet of sewer lines connecting individual sewer taps to a main sewer line which travels under Highway 85 to the municipal waste water treatment facility located approximately 1.5 miles southeast of Pierce.  On a yearly basis main sewer lines are "jetted" (flushed) and monitored/viewed by use of video cameras.  On a monthly basis specific points are spot checked for any potential problems.  The town is served by a state of the art waste water treatment plant completed in June 2011.  The facility is overseen and maintained by town personnel who hold specialized operator certifications required by the State in order to perform testing and maintenance procedures, assuring the facility meets all State and Federal laws and requirements.    

Streets

The Town now has about eight (8) miles of street to maintain. A program of street and sign updates and repair is budgeted each year, as well as the normal repair and maintenance budget.

The Town of Pierce plows snow from its streets when snow fall reaches 4 inches or more. For this reason, we ask that when slick conditions exist, slow down and use extra caution in driving and walking. 

Parks

 The Town of Pierce maintains five separate park and recreation areas: 

  • Bickling Field - west Main Ave., between 4th & 5th St
  • Jones Park - located north of Jones Ave., between 2nd & 3rd St.  
  • Priddy Park - east side of First St., between Shafer and Park Ave.  
  • Phillips Park - on Priddy Ave., between E. Shafer & E. Park Ave.
  • Skate Park - east Main Ave., directly east of Carr St.  

Reserving parks for private use: Town residents may reserve park facilities free of cost uon proof of residency.  Extra tables and chairs are available upon request with proof of residency.  


Please throw trash into trash cans and abide by park rules designated by signs posted in these areas.  Pet owners MUST remove all pet waste.  Help keep our parks and public areas clean and safe for our children and community residents.
