The trucks are delivering top soil to the project's lower terrace area. With the beautiful, sunny weather this week, dust control measures are in place to help prevent dirt and dust flying into the air.
The tunnel and pipeline are complete and the project is nearing completion. Over the next few months, additional equipment will be removed from the site, including the office trailers.
In the fall, as we get closer to the rainy season, a seed mixture of native grasses and plants will be added to the upper terrace (also known as the meadow or muck disposal area). More information will be provided this summer.
Thank you again to our neighbors for your continued support and patience during the final stages of the project.

The Pulgas Water Temple and the associated facilities around it serve the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System and are components of the Crystal Springs Reservoir System. The Crystal Springs Reservoir System provides supplementary water supply to San Mateo and San Francisco counties, and is the primary emergency water source should delivery from the Hetch Hetchy aqueduct be interrupted.
The work is part of the Water System Improvement Program to repair, replace and seismically upgrade the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns at (866) 973-1476, 24 hours a day. For email notification when then Pulgas Water Temple reopens, subscribe to our e-newsletter at www.sfwater.org/SCT .

Over the next several weeks, crews will begin removing construction related materials from the North Shaft site located near the intersection of Crystal Springs Road and Polheumus Road in San Mateo. Crews will remove equipment, grade the soil on site, backfill soil, remove fencing and remove the k-rail concrete protective structures along the site of the roadway.
Please drive the posted 10 m.p.h speed limit on Crystal Springs Road and be aware of workers, trucks and equipment in or near the roadway during this demobilization work.
Once they remove the posted 10 m.p.h speed limit signs, the speed limit will return to normal.
