The Stormwater Management Requirements and Design Guidelines (SMR) outlines the mandatory requirements for managing post-construction stormwater runoff and provides guidance on how to incorporate green infrastructure into site design. The performance requirements vary depending on the type of sewer system servicing a project (combined or separate), the agency with jurisdiction over the project (SFPUC or Port), and the size of the project. Refer to the SMR Summary Flyer for more information. The Stormwater Management Ordinance (SMO) – Public Works Code, Article 4.2 Sections 147-147.6 – requires
We work with restaurants and food service establishments to help prevent these pollutants from entering and clogging our sewer system. Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) can be a major problem for our City’s sewers. When poured down the drain, FOG hardens inside sewer pipes, constricting wastewater flow and clogging the pipes. This can lead to sewer overflows onto City streets, which is a very expensive problem. In fact, we spend millions of dollars each year to clear grease-clogged pipes. Restaurants and other food service establishments are a significant source of FOG, and our FOG Control Ordinance
To protect our environment and communities, our construction permits require pollution prevention as well as pretreatment. What is Pretreatment? Wastewater from non-domestic (i.e., industrial and commercial) sources can contain pollutants, such as fats, oils and grease, heavy metals (such as lead and mercury), or low pH. These pollutants can damage sewers, interfere with the operation of wastewater treatment plants, end up in the receiving waters or in the sludge removed at the plants, or jeopardize the health and safety of plant staff or field crews and the general public. The practice of
“Across the country, infrastructure is deteriorating or not meeting modern standards,” says Ahmad Ahmad, Senior Sanitary Engineer at the Southeast Treatment Plant (SEP). “That includes our bridges, freeways, public roads, sewer system, water lines, and wastewater treatment plants.” “And a lot of San Franciscans may not realize it right now, but right here in the city we are many years into our sewer system upgrade,” she adds. Ahmad is part of the team that manages the SEP facilities and their nonstop operations. Located in Bayview-Hunters Point, the SEP treats 80% of San Francisco’s wastewater

It’s Climate Action Month and it’s as good a time as ever to be reminded that we only have one planet so we should take care of it. We each have favorite possessions that we take extra care of, and what we all collectively share responsibility for is taking care of “Mother Earth.” As good stewards of the community, we ask that you keep these three things in mind and together, we can make a difference in preserving the land, sea and air that makes San Francisco the city we have all come to enjoy. Keep Pollutants Out of the Bay and Ocean Pollutants such as trash, pet waste, pesticides and motor
San Francisco is poised to invest billions of dollars into the City's aging public infrastructure - water, sewer, roads, and transit systems. Local and small businesses will need tools and resources to adequately get access to, compete for, and perform on these contracting opportunities.
This project will install a new sewer pipe under Vicente Street, from Wawona Street to 34th Avenue. The project will also replace the aging water transmission and distribution mains on Wawona Street, 15th Avenue, and on Vicente Street west of 19th Avenue.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has a comprehensive inspection program to assess the condition and expected life span of more than 1,250 miles of water pipes within the City and County of San Francisco. In order to deliver water to San Francisco residents, businesses and visitors 24 hours a day, every day of the year we often have to work at night. We work at night primarily for three reasons: To accommodate the needs of neighborhood businesses (laundry, cleaners, restaurants etc.) who are impacted by interruptions of water service during the day.

What is a Project Labor Agreement? Our capital improvement programs are possible through project labor agreements (PLAs). These are formal agreements with local labor unions which ensure that local workers and residents impacted by these capital projects have access to construction training and job opportunities. Over the years, PLAs have brought thousands of critically needed jobs to San Francisco, while building healthier, more reliable water and sewer systems.
