PWA is Dedicated to Innovation and Excellence and has created strategic objectives and goals to achieve this end.

Our intent is to instill a culture of innovation and constant improvement within PWA. While our agency has always strived to deliver public services that meet or exceed the expectations of the citizens we serve, there are always opportunities to improve or refine our service delivery processes.
