Watershed and Environmental Improvement Program

The Watershed and Environmental Improvement Program is a 10-year, $50 million, program to proactively manage, protect and restore environmental resources affected by our system operations. Funded in part by Water System Improvement Program Measure A bond funds and in part by operating funds, the Program spans the Peninsula, Alameda, and Tuolumne Watersheds, as well areas in San Francisco.

WEIP Alameda Watershed

The Program’s objectives are:
• Manage watershed activities and resources to protect source water quality and protect/restore terrestrial and aquatic species and their habitats
• Protect/restore watershed lands
• Enhance public awareness of watershed resources, their protection, and restoration efforts
• Include key stakeholders in the Program
• Maintain up-to-date watershed assessments and management plans
• Develop monitoring and feedback mechanisms to measure progress

We design and implement projects as part of the WEIP that:
• Are above and beyond normal watershed maintenance activities (e.g. roads, fences, and trails)
• Meet the goals of the Water Enterprise Environmental Stewardship Policy
• Are not already included in any other SFPUC projects, or as mitigation for either the Water System Improvement Program (WSIP),or the Bioregional Habitat Restoration Program for the Alameda Watershed.
