We hope you and your loved ones are safe and staying connected during these challenging times. The SFPUC is focused on the health of our teams and continued delivery of our critical water, power and sewer services. You may see our field or construction crews at work maintaining, repairing and upgrading our essential infrastructure. We are making sure they do so as safely as possible. We ask the public to please maintain proper social distance from our crews as they work.

Southeast Treatment Plant Construction Look-Ahead

  • To ensure public and worker safety, the SFPUC will be coordinating with SFMTA in advance of closing Jerrold Avenue between Phelps Avenue and Rankin Street. This closure is anticipated summer 2020. We will keep the public informed about the process as it moves forward.

At Work in Your Neighborhood

Built in 1952, the Southeast Treatment Plant (SEP) treats 80% of the City’s wastewater, but many of the plant’s facilities need to be upgraded or replaced. The Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP) projects at the SEP focus on making the plant smell better, look better, operate more efficiently, and protect our critical equipment in the event of an earthquake.

SSIP projects at the Southeast Treatment Plant will accelerate the SFPUC’s vision to transform San Francisco’s largest wastewater treatment plant into a start of the art resource recovery facility, a City destination, a proud neighborhood asset and an attractive workplace.
