Restoration work is now complete to the roads, sidewalks and staging areas in our 18 work areas in seven northern San Mateo County cities!
On behalf of all of us on the Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2 (CSPL2) Replacement team, we want to thank the residents, motorists, businesses and partnering city agencies we’ve worked with to improve our system to insure water delivery to the region well into the future.
As the 107th anniversary of the great 1906 Earthquake passed on April 18, it is important to understand how the Bay Area’s topography has changed since the CSPL2 pipeline was first installed in the early 1930s.
Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2, first installed in Burlingame in 1937.
In spring 2011 thru early 2013, crews worked to “slipline” a large-diameter pipeline inside the original pipeline to minimize traffic impacts along El Camino Real and 12 areas in Hillsborough, Burlingame and Millbrae.
In 1936, construction crews worked alongside two homes on a South San Francisco hill to install this tunnel to allow water to travel north toward Brisbane.
In 2011 construction crews were visibly working in a vibrant South San Francisco to seismically upgrade the Hetch Hetchy regional water delivery pipelines.
For more questions about how the SFPUC is seismically upgrading the regional Hetch Hetchy Water System, please contact us at 866-973-1476, or visit www.sfwater.org/wsip.
Be Prepared This April!
