Located in southwest Washington, Clark County stretches from the north bank of the Columbia River to the southern shadows of Mount St. Helens. As a regional hub for transportation and commerce, Clark County is across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon, and the Portland International Airport, and is a vital player in a bi-state metropolitan area with a growing economy, an exemplary education system and access to high-quality health care, housing, transportation, parks and many other amenities. Clark County is the fifth most populous county in Washington with more than 481,950 residents. Clark County’s seat and largest city is Vancouver, which is the fourth largest city in Washington and boasts a vibrant downtown. With a mild year-round climate, the region is the perfect place to take advantage of outdoor recreational activities.


The Clark County Public Works Department employs more than 300 employees and provides services primarily to 225,000 residents who live in unincorporated areas outside city boundaries. The department is currently divided into six divisions: Administration & Finance, Clean Water, Engineering & Construction, Parks & Lands, Road Maintenance & Safety, and Transportation & Development.
