Regional GSR Project Begins Well Drilling Next Week

On Thursday, June 18, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s Regional Groundwater Storage and Recovery (GSR) project will begin drilling a new groundwater well to a depth of 730 feet deep at Benjamin Franklin Intermediate School in Daly City.

24-hour well drilling work will occur continuously for up to one month. inside the blue rectangle pictured above. 

To minimize noise impacts, the contractor will monitor noise levels and install sound blankets to ensure it does not exceed the local noise ordinance. During night work, the contractor will rotate construction lighting to direct it away from homes near well drilling work. 

For more information about this project, please call the 24-hour answering service at 866-973-1476, or visit the Project webpage at
