The materials presented review the range of possible solutions that the Sewer System Master Plan Team evaluated to address the identified collection system and treatment facilities challenges. From this wide range of options, the suite of feasible approaches that are consistent with a dense urban environment are included in the team recommendations. These recommendations form the background or baseline projects for the implementation through the Sewer System Improvement Program.

The materials that are provided include:

  • Summary Report Chapter 5 [PDF] on Implementation.
  • Further detail in the Supplementary Report Chapter 5 [PDF] that contains an expanded discussion and details about the alternative considered.
  • Seventeen Technical Memoranda that include the Long-Term Biosolids Management Plan, Odor Control options for both the Collection System and Treatment Facilities, and a range of memoranda on sustainability considerations including Greenhouse Gas Analysis, Low Impact Design/Development, and Recycled Water.

      TM 600 Series
    1. TM 601 [PDF] outlines four alternatives that achieve wastewater treatment and stormwater management objectives as well as the corresponding capital improvement program and operation and maintenance costs for the recommended project.
    2. TM 602 [PDF] summarizes the four treatment and disposal alternatives for Master Plan and corresponding treatment plant footprint requirements.
    3. TM 603 [PDF] summarizes of the collection system performance under the four alternative scenarios.
    4. TM 604 [PDF] describes the possible architectural mitigations for the four alternatives.
    5. TM 605 [PDF] highlights the collection system odor control measures as a key component in all considered alternatives.
    6. TM 606 [PDF] highlights the treatment system odor control measures as a key component in all considered alternatives.
    7. TM 607 [PDF] evaluates alternative biosolids management methods and approaches for San Francisco.
    8. TM 608 [PDF] identifies the key design and operating criteria for the new biosolids center including footprint requirements and capital costs.

      TM 800 Series
    9. TM 801 [PDF] provides a general overview of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design™ (LEED) method and outlines possible avenues of certification.
    10. TM 802 [PDF] evaluates the viability of using of green technologies (constructed wetlands, living machines with tidal wetlands, and floating aquatic plant systems) and small scale demonstration projects (recirculating gravel filters, biotextile filters, and membrane bioreactors).
    11. TM 803 [PDF] discusses the feasibility and regulatory process of the collection, treatment and reuse of rainwater and wastewater on-site at larger multiresidence, commercial, or industrial buildings.
    12. TM 804 [PDF] provides the greenhouse gas emissions estimates, assumptions, and configurations for the four alternatives evaluated in October 2007 and for the baseline and preferred configuration evaluated in November 2008.
    13. TM 805 [PDF] identifies the major existing and proposed regulatory requirements governing the use of recycled water in San Francisco and presents feasible scenarios for eastside water recycling.

      • Figure 3 [PDF] - Recycled Water Distribution System for Bruce Flynn Pump Station Project
      • Figure 4 [PDF] - Recycled Water Distribution System for North Point Facility Project
    14. TM 806 [PDF] describes graywater use and its applicability to San Francisco’s wastewater and sewer system planning process.
    15. TM 807 [PDF] provides a literature review and a collection of case studies regarding green infrastructure strategies, otherwise known as low impact development.
    16. TM 808 [PDF] describes the Low Impact Design (LID) program for implementing basin-scale low impact design projects that will reduce and delay stormwater flows into the sewers, enhance local neighborhoods and environments, and maximize the efficiency of San Francisco’s combined sewer system.
    17. TM 809 [PDF] summarizes findings of the Low Impact Design analysis and recommendations for development of policies, programs and projects.
  • Seven appendices that give further detailed information in support of the report chapters, including further detail on treatment options, UV cost calculations, and Asset Management.
    1. Appendix T [PDF] presents many of the key sustainability issues and information about the evaluation tools.
    2. Appendix U [PDF] provides details about the range of treatment technologies that were evaluated.
    3. Appendix V [PDF] includes site information for potential treatment projects.
    4. Appendix W [PDF] presents SFPUC Wastewater Enterprise’s planned approach to implementing low impact development.
    5. Appendix X [PDF] summarizes the structural elements of two approaches to address Upper Alemany Drainage Basin flooding problems.
    6. Appendix Y [PDF] presents a cost comparison for two disinfection options for the Southeast Water Pollution Control Plant secondary effluent.
    7. Appendix Z [PDF] presents details on the SFPUC Wastewater Enterprise’s planned approach to asset management.
