The Civil Division works with engineers, developers and citizens as well as other City/County departments. We provide engineering services, such as Design and Inspection. We also address infrastructure concerns from an engineering standpoint. In addition, this Division maintains a library of drawings. We strive to meet the needs of our customers and look forward to continuing to serve the City of Albany/Dougherty County in the future.

The Civil Division is responsible for field surveying, drafting and design of civil projects within the City of Albany. Designs are produced utilizing Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) technology.

The main purpose of this mapping project is to inventory the storm and sanitary sewer utility infrastructure presently in the ground that is managed by the City of Albany, as well as produce an updated and easy to maintain map and database. Each utility system will have its own database that can be shared across the City’s computer network and integrated with existing engineering, planning, and maintenance operations within the organization.
