This project would provide a local source of water to improve reliability during drought or maintenance conditions, as well as ensuring that a reliable, high-quality source of water is available in case of an earthquake or other emergency. The project proposes the construction of up to six wells and associated facilities in the western part of San Francisco to extract up to 4 million gallons per day of water from the Westside Groundwater Basin.
This project proposes to balance the use of both groundwater and surface water to increase water supply reliability during dry years or in emergencies. The project is located within San Mateo County and is sponsored by the SFPUC in coordination with its partner agencies, the California Water Service Company, the City of Daly City, and the City of San Bruno.
