Improving our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community
Thank you for attending our Community Open House on 1/22/14!
Thank you to everyone who came out to learn about proposals for traffic calming and green infrastructure in the Wiggle corridor. If you weren't able to make it, please take a look at the Poster Boards and factsheet below and let us know what you think about the project and our public outreach process.
The Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor is a partnership of the SFPUC and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), located along the iconic “Wiggle” bicycle route and the Lower Haight, Alamo Square and Duboce Park neighborhoods.
This project will feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include integration of permeable paving to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer system. During heavy rains, this can overwhelm the system and result in neighborhood flooding.
