public works department everett

Public Works Department (PWD) Everett has an area of responsibility encompassing 11 states, including Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa. 

PWD Everett staff are mainly located at the waterfront site of Naval Station Everett, at the north end of the City of Everett, with a small satellite crew homeported at Naval Radio Station Jim Creek, located between the City of Arlington and the Town of Oso. 

Leadership consists of the public works officer, deputy public works officer, and four division directors who serve within the facilities maintenance division, facilities engineering and acquisition division, production division, and the environmental division. 
Naval Station Everett (NAVSTA Everett) is a military installation located in the city of Everett, Washington, 25 miles north of Seattle. The naval station, located on the city's waterfront on the northeastern end of Puget Sound, was designed as a homeport for a US Navy carrier strike group and opened April 8, 1994. A separate Navy Support Complex is located in Smokey Point, Marysville, 11 miles north of Everett near Marysville, and houses a commissary, Navy Exchange, a college and other services.

NAVSTA Everett is home to several guided-missile Destroyers, a Coast Guard Keeper-class cutter USCGC Henry Blake, and a USCG Marine Protector-class patrol boat, USCGC Blue Shark, and future home of several new Constellation class guided-missile Frigates. There are about 6,000 sailors and civil service persons assigned to commands located at Naval Station Everett. The Naval Station itself has about 350 sailors and civilians assigned.
Although a Naval Reservation existed previously at the site, the history of Naval Station Everett began in 1983 when Secretary of the Navy John Lehman first proposed a new Puget Sound-area naval base as part of the Strategic Homeport concept program. In the early 1980s, Congress approved the strategic homeporting initiative to build additional bases and disperse the fleet from the main concentration areas. It was decided in 1985 that the strategic homeport program was the best method for implementing the militarily-sound principles of dispersal, battlegroup integrity, and increasing the naval presence in the geographic flanks.

On April 17, 1984, Everett was selected from among 13 ports as the ideal location for the new homeport, ahead of a site near the Port of Seattle. Congress approved $43.5 million in funds for construction of the homeport on October 2, 1986.  On May 5, 1987, the Port of Everett Commission approved the sale of 143 acres to build the base, and the official groundbreaking ceremony was November 9, 1987. Despite the groundbreaking, dredging permits took until the following week due to opposition from environmentalist groups, who unsuccessfully appealed in court to halt construction. On September 9, 1988, the Navy awarded a separate $56.4 million construction contract for the 1,620-foot long, 120-foot-wide carrier pier. On June 4, 1992, three Navy ships participated in the formal opening of the new pier.

On June 26, 1993, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission voted unanimously to retain the planned Everett homeport and close the Naval Air Station Alameda in California. In January 1994, Naval Station Puget Sound personnel began transitioning to the new Fleet Support and Administration buildings and officially began operations at Naval Station Everett. On April 8, 1994, an official commissioning ceremony was conducted with over 1,500 guests in attendance.
