New Mt Davidson Pump Station Nears Completion

The Mt Davidson Pump Station project team are making the final touches on the new, modern and efficient water pumping station located on Agua Way at La Bica.

The new building was designed to look like homes in the neighborhood and its new pumps and electrical equipment are modern and more energy efficient.

New landscaping is beginning to grow and bloom on the La Bica Path and surrounding the upgraded Stanford Heights Reservoir. New plants will be added in front of the pump station building soon.

Update: Eucalyptus and 19th Avenue in San Francisco

A contractor’s crew is beginning to dig a trench to install 36” diameter steel water pipe just west of the existing bore pit located at the intersection of Eucalyptus and 19th Avenue in San Francisco. The crew will be heading westbound along Eucalyptus to 22nd Avenue to install the water pipe. Later this spring, the installation will turn northbound up 22nd Avenue, terminating near Sloat Blvd. at the Merced Manor Reservoir.

Neighbors can expect some parking limitations, with 72 hours notification before any removal of parking. Iris Martin Lopez has been working with the nearby schools and the YMCA to ensure that daily routines are not obstructed. She can be reached at (415) 554-3222 or via email:

Rain temporarily halted work on Junipero Serra and Holloway, but workers will return this week as weather improves. Weather permitting, the contractor plans to complete work at that location by early April.

Public Comment Welcome on Agua Way Bamboo Plan

Our landscape folks have created a proposed planting plan for the area near the blue valves and chlorine building along Agua Way near Teresita. The plan includes beautiful clumping bamboo and blooming flowers that will create a 'green screen' that neighbors can enjoy instead of viewing the valves and other equipment.
You can view the drawings near the valves on Agua Way.
Please provide comments by noon on Thursday, March 11th via email to
We will soon be painting the chlorine building, DPW will repave Agua Way this Spring and then we can plant proposed bamboo and flowers. Bamboo can grow between 12 and 16 feet in height and will fill out over time.
Thank you to the many Agua Way neighbors who suggested bamboo as a good option for everyone.
