Suzanne Healy

Environmental Projects Analyst

I've been at Public Works 15 years now and enjoy working on efforts to help improve the City and protect the environment.

My work addresses storm water issues, landfill environmental compliance and other environmental projects. I facilitate the City’s Storm Water Management Program and apply for permits and grants for a variety of environmental projects. You may sometimes find me at Neary Lagoon where I work on projects including sediment management.

I especially enjoy working with local non-profits doing river cleanups, volunteer watershed monitoring and public outreach on water pollution issues. I also do environmental education at special events—the annual Santa Cruz Earth Day event at the San Lorenzo River Benchlands is one of my favorites.

Santa Cruz is such a beautiful and vibrant place—I appreciate being able to work and live here.
