Get behind the scenes with Richmond Department of Public Utilities

Meet with DPU once a week for four weeks and find out what’s going on in the infrastructure.




Richmond Department of Public Utilities (DPU) takes care of the city’s natural gas, water, wastewater, stormwater, and over 37,000 streetlights. Without these services life would be pretty miserable. A fact that many of us know due to this summer’s storms. Now’s your chance to find out more about exactly how and what these city workers do on a daily basis.
