Engineering Division - Testing and Inspections

The Public Works Department of Okaloosa County will achieve a record of outstanding customer satisfaction.

This section reviews all the commercial and subdivision plans to ensure compliance with the Land Development Code. Inspectors monitor all infrastructure improvements that are constructed by developers during the temporary maintenance period to guarantee that the improvements are up to standard and acceptable to enter into the county maintenance system. All permits are processed through this section.

Environmental issues and concerns are investigated and permitted through this section. All drainage complaints that can't be handled by the Road Department maintenance section are funneled through this section for investigation and recommendations.

The Okaloosa County road paving program is closely monitored by inspectors who perform periodic inspections, gather material samples for tests, perform density checks, asphalt thickness checks, and generally oversee the county asphalt program.

The bridge inspection program is administered by this section, also.
