Last Seismic Improvement Pipeline Project Approved for Hetch Hetchy Water System

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has approved the $42.5 million Peninsula Pipeline Seismic Upgrade Project (PPSU). The project will repair and replace sections of several water delivery pipelines located in northern San Mateo County to ensure these critical pipelines can withstand a major earthquake. The San Francisco Planning Commission approved the project’s Environmental Impact Report on October 17, and the SFPUC’s actions yesterday will send the project to bid. This is the last water pipeline improvement project to move into construction of the more than 80 infrastructure projects as part of the $4.6 billion Water System Improvement Program (WSIP). 

“When completed, the newly upgraded pipelines will provide the residents and businesses of northern San Mateo County and San Francisco even more assurance that water will be available for firefighting, drinking and operational use following an earthquake,” said SFPUC General Manager Harlan Kelly, Jr.
