Engineering

Engineering staff is involved in all aspects of infrastructure and development within the Town of Platteville.  Whether improving drainage, planning streets and parking, or ensuring safety of our pedestrian walkways and crosswalks, Engineering reviews plans and monitors construction to insure strict adherence to Guidelines and Standards.

Construction and Design Standards


All construction, repair, augmentation, and new development affecting the infrastructure of the Town must adhere to current standards.

Streets and Transportation Standards


The Platteville Street Criteria Manual is intended to provide all necessary information regarding design, review and construction of projects and public improvements impacting public right-of-way and public easements.  This manual addresses streets, sidewalks, curb and gutter, drainage, lighting, signage and signals, landscaping, trails, and soils sampling and testing.

Water and Sewer Standards


The Platteville Water and Sewer Criteria Manual presents the minimum design and technical criteria for water distribution, sanitary sewer collection and non-potable irrigation system design.

Storm Drainage Standards


The Platteville Storm Drainage Criteria Manual provides analysis and design criteria for storm drainage facilities designed to reduce flooding and improve the quality of water released into the river system.  Additional information may be found at the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District.

Other specifications and manuals can be found at the Colorado Department of Transportation Design and Construction Support site.
