New faciliities will be built using a climate change design criterion so that the sewer system will be better able to respond to rising sea levels and other impacts.

Achieve Economic and Environmental Sustainability

The SFPUC will beneficially reuse and conserve the by-products of our wastewater and stormwater treatment systems.
