The Engineering Division is responsible for the long-range planning, design, construction supervision and records management for storm drainage systems; sanitary sewage collection and treatment; water supply, treatment and distribution; roads and bridges. The Engineering Division also tracks repairs made to the streets by outside agencies through the use of the Utility Location Permit application.

Driveway permit applications for residential and other uses are also administered by the Engineering Division.

 Driveway Application 
Driveway installations are controlled by the City Driveway Control Policy No. 11-02-04. The Policy outlines many of the requirements related to the location and construction of driveways, as well as information requirements related to submitting the application.
How to apply
Applications are to be made at the Infrastructure & Operations Department's Engineering Division, located on the 2nd Floor of the Victoriaville Civic Centre, 111 Syndicate Ave.  All driveway applications must be accompanied by a sketch of the proposed driveway location. 
Reference materials
A reference copy of a driveway application as well as an example of a driveway sketch are provided to residents for information purposes only. 
Insurance
Driveway permits that involve construction to be performed on the City street allowance will also require proof of insurance to be submitted, either by the applicant/home owner if they are doing the work themselves, or by the Contractor performing the work. Home owners must submit a copy of their home owner's insurance policy showing $2 million general liability insurance coverage and must also sign and submit a hold harmless agreement. Contractors must submit a Contractor certificate of insurance form with the appropriate work type and location description. The City maintains a list of all Contractors that have submitted insurance for the year.
