This fall, the contractor is working on the final phase to seismically upgrade the water pipeline located underground along the hillside behind Meadows School in Millbrae. This pipeline conveys drinking water from the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant to the Peninsula.
|Phase 2 of pipeline upgrade|
Phase 1: Completed in June 2013.
Phase 2: Completed in August 2013.
Phase 3: October 1st – December 15th (dates subject to change).
Equipment mobilization and material delivery will begin the week of October 1.
This phase includes excavation, welding and concrete placement for “sliplining”, placing a new steel pipe inside the existing pipe.
Work hours will be 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Construction truck traffic can be expected. This will be the most intense phase of construction.
We are coordinating our work around Meadows School and Happy Hall’s drop-off and pick-up schedules for safety and convenience.
We aim to minimize construction impacts to the surrounding neighborhood and schools. We apologize in advance for any disturbance or inconvenience and invite you to call our 24-hour phone line at

Our contractor, Kiewit Infrastructure West Co., is working in multiple areas within the Harry Tracy Plant, part of the Hetch Hetchy Water System Improvement Program. Seismic retrofits and electrical upgrades will allow us to reliably provide up to 140 million gallons of water per day, for 60 days, within 24 hours of a major earthquake. Harry Tracy serves several communities on the Peninsula in addition to San Francisco.
