Engineering Department

Welcome to the City of Placerville Engineering Department!


We understand the incredible impacts to our community during the call for restrictions amid the COVID19 pandemic.  The state implemented restrictions have caused merchants and businesses to change their in-store service models to drive-thru/pick up service only.  In some instances, this may require the use of a parking spaces or encroachment into City right-of-way.  As such, the Engineering Department will be issuing no-cost encroachment permits, using the following application and conditions.  For the safety of the public and our staff, applications can only be submitted via email to 

We're wishing everyone health and wellness during this challenging time.
