Construction Update at Peninsula Watershed Reservoirs

Silt curtains to protect species and water quality
delivered to San Andreas Lake: May 10, 2011

Barge and Dive Boat Launching at San Andreas Lake:

Does the water level appear low to you at San Andreas Lake? It will continue to get slightly lower to accommodate upcoming underwater seismic improvements. You may also see our crew transporting large marine equipment near the trailhead to San Andreas Trail and the northern entrance to the Sawyer Camp Trail.

The construction team must use the Hillcrest Gate entrance for water craft and other large equipment, which may cause delays on Hillcrest Blvd. (near Skyline in Millbrae, just west of 280). Large deliveries are expected over the next couple of weeks, with work in the reservoir taking place all summer.

If you frequently access Sawyer Camp Trail from Millbrae’s northern trailhead, the trail will remain open! Follow us on Twitter for real-time updates about activities:

Pulgas Water Temple Temporary Closure:

Further south in the Peninsula Watershed (along CaƱada Road), the Pulgas Water Temple is closed as of Monday, May 23rd and is expected to reopen in mid-summer 2011. Please subscribe (see right) in order to receive an email when the temple reopens.
