UPDATE: Concrete Pour Dates

On Thursday, April 4th and Tuesday, April 9th, the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant project will conduct intensive concrete pours. These concrete “placement activities” will require a large number of trucks to travel along Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno to create the base slab for the new 11 million gallon Treated Water Reservoir. Pilot cars will regulate the speed and number of trucks entering and exiting the plant gate.

Work hours: 7:00am until at least 7:00pm
Long work days are necessary to ensure the concrete base slab has adequate time to dry in current weather conditions.

Two similar concrete placement activities are necessary later in April. Exact dates and more information will be posted here on our blog, www.sfwater.org/Peninsula, and will be available by email - peninsula@sfwater.org - and on our 24-hour phone line, (866) 973-1476.

We are making every effort to minimize construction impacts to surrounding neighborhoods. Please don’t hesitate to call our 24-hour phone line or email us with questions or concerns.

Extended Hours and Trucking for Concrete Pours in April


Concrete placement at Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant
Starting as early as Tuesday, April 2nd, the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant project will be conducting four intensive concrete pour activities this month. Exact dates will be posted here on our blog, www.sfwater.org/Peninsula, and will be available by email - peninsula@sfwater.org - and on our 24-hour phone line, (866) 973-1476.

The concrete placement activities will require a large number of concrete trucks to travel along Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno to create the base slab for the new 11 million gallon Treated Water Reservoir. Pilot cars will regulate the speed and number of trucks entering and exiting the plant gate.

Work hours: 7:00am until at least 7:00pm
Long work days are planned to ensure the concrete base slab for each quadrant of the reservoir has adequate time to dry in current weather conditions.

To prepare for this concrete work, the contractor is maintaining a swing shift until 12:00 am on weekdays until further notice. Cranes and forklifts will be operated for the installation of slab reinforcement and seismic cables. Lights may be visible from the work area, but no additional truck traffic is anticipated for this preparation work.

Multiple shifts will continue on Saturdays and Sundays as they have for the past month.

We are making every effort to minimize construction impacts to surrounding neighborhoods.
Our construction crews and environmental monitors assess noise, vibration, dust, and other potential disturbances caused by construction in order to comply with all local, state and federal laws.

We work with the contractor to ensure all diesel trucks, equipment and generators are equipped with Best Available Control Technology for emissions reduction and that idling is minimized near schools and residences.

Let us know if you have other suggestions for minimizing disturbance or inconvenience. Please don’t hesitate to call our 24-hour phone line at (866) 973-1476 or email peninsula@sfwater.org with questions or concerns.
