This temporary paving will remain in place until the completion of the project when the street permanent surface will be restored.

The existing North Shore force main serves more than 350,000 people by transporting combined wastewater – sanitary sewage and stormwater – from the northeast part of San Francisco to the Southeast Wastwater Treatment Plant for treatment. The existing force main is near the end of its useful life and in need of repair. The completion of this new sewer project will enable the rehabilitation of the existing sewer line and ensure continued service to residents and businesses of San Francisco.
