Landscaping Work Continues on Polhemus Rd in San Mateo



Crews continue to work at the New Crystal Springs Bypass Tunnel South Shaft site along Polhemus Road in San Mateo.


Hydroseeding began this week and will likely continue into next week (week of December 12th). Neighbors may notice the bright green color on the soil in the area. The green soil mixture contains thousands of seeds that will germinate with the wet weather and grow into grasses in the late winter/early spring. The green color will eventually disappear. Neighbors may see the machine spraying the seeds this week.


Crews will likely finish the landscaping work during the week of December 12th.


Work is moving quickly thanks to the sunny weather. In order to manage dust, crews will continue to wet down the area with water as needed.


Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Contact Amy Sinclair at 415-551-4659, asinclair@sfwater.org. After hours and weekends please call 866-973-1476.


Happy Holidays!
