From May 15 to 21, the American Public Works Association celebrates National Public Works Week, and given how much crossover there is with the critical work being done by utilities to serve their communities, Energy Central is tipping our cap to National Public Works Week as well. 

We've collected a suite of resources shared in our community over the past few months to highlight some of the best advice, lessons learned, and human stories related to those professionals who are guiding public works and ensuring the power sector remains resilient and reliable no matter the challenges it faces. 

I encourage you to take a look at the articles linked below, and also to share your stories about the importance of public works in the community. Consider sharing your story in the comments below or even starting a new post of your own!
