Head Of Public Works

The City of Waller Public Works Department utilizes efforts to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Waller.  This is accomplished by monitoring construction related activities, utilizing engineers for streets, drainage and development of the infrastructure including water, sewer, and gas, and providing plans for the future of Waller’s growth.  This department is also responsible for the City’s Animal Services.

The Waller Public Works Department is headed by Gene Schmidt, Superintendent of Public Works.

Waller has three elevated storage tanks, which hold 450 thousand gallons of water and two ground storage tanks which hold 650,000 gallons of water running at 1100 gallons per minute, from 40 to 55 psi. The city is able to provide over 1100 thousand gallons of storage per day, which amounts to 150 gallons per person per day, while running at only 50% capacity, allowing for future growth in the city.

Citizens wanting to report street lights or traffic signs needing repairs, schedule heavy trash pick-up, or in need of assistance with their garbage collection, water, sewer, or gas services should contact the Public Works Department, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, at 936-372-3880.
