San Andreas Pipeline No. 3 Installation Boring Pit on Crespi Drive

Project Summary

The San Andreas Pipeline No. 3 Installation will replace an aging pipeline, with a newly constructed 4 miles extension from Daly City to San Francisco.

In preparing for installation of the San Andreas Pipeline No. 3, crews will dig a pit to bore or drill an underground tunnel to make space for the new water pipeline.

The bore pit will be located at the Crespi Drive round-about circle in Parkmerced. Crews will bore under 19th Avenue to Holloway Avenue.

Crews will begin digging the pit in late September 2009. Boring is expected to be completed by the end of October 2009.

Workdays & Hours
Monday – Friday 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM
No construction will occur outside of these posted hours without advance written notice.

Thank you for Neighborhood Input

The SFPUC appreciates continued neighborhood input on the reservoir and pump station projects at Stanford Heights Reservoir and Mt Davidson Pump Station.

The landscaping phase is beginning and soon neighbors will see the addition of new native plants and bushes around the reservoir. Hydroseeding, which is a spray mix of wildflower seeds, will be added behind the new fence soon.

We appreciate many of our Agua Way neighbors meeting with us and Supervisor Elsbernd at the site recently to discuss alternatives for the area near the chlorine building and the blue valves. We will discuss options with our project team and follow up soon. The Water Department is making plans to repaint the chlorine building this fall to match the new pump station on Agua Way. Once we complete these projects by the end of the year, we believe the area will look great again.
