Construction Update: Polhemus Road Near Bunker Hill

Kiewit Infrastructure West, contractor for the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System, will be utilizing water system property at the corner of Bunker Hill Rd and Polhemus Rd. for temporary construction storage over the next 3 months.

Starting within the next two weeks, there will be truck and hauling activity onto the site (accessing from Polhemus Rd. only). We expect this activity to last approximately one week once it begins. Trucks will be delivering and storing soil at the site while construction at Lower Crystal Springs Dam is ongoing. All soil storage will be covered and continually monitored to ensure dust and runoff does not occur.

Truck hauling hours: 8AM – 6PM
Duration: Truck activity for one week.

Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant Upgrades

Starting July 7th, contractor, Kiewit Infrastructure West, Inc. will begin pile-driving activities at our Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant (near 280 and Crystal Springs Road). This plant treats drinking water from the Crystal Springs Reservoir System (Upper and Lower Crystal Springs Reservoirs and San Andreas Lake) for delivery to northern San Mateo County and San Francisco.

Pile-driving is necessary to form the foundation of our new seismically upgraded treated water reservoir. The first phase of this activity is expected to last no longer than 3 weeks (approximately the end of July).

All work for this project will take place within our property.

Additional noise may be audible to adjacent areas during construction activity. Noise levels will be monitored and maintained within permitted limits.

Vibrations are not expected to impact adjacent areas.

Residents may see additional truck traffic along Crystal Springs Road, as materials are delivered and removed from the site.
