Take the Plunge! Learn About Your City's Urban Watersheds!
Monday, April 29, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) invites you to a lunchtime presentation about the history and future of San Francisco’s Channel and Northshore Watersheds. Covering the northeast portion of the city, the Channel and Northshore Urban Watersheds transport millions of gallons of rainwater in large storms to one of the City’s three treatment plants. Most of this water flows in a network of sewer pipes running along the path of historic creeks, marshes, wetlands, and throughout the city below our streets. Learn about the challenges our sewer system is facing and discover how the SFPUC’s Urban Watershed Assessment will plan for the next 20 years of sewer system upgrades from the Presidio to the Haight Ashbury, Castro, SOMA and the Mission neighborhoods. Upgrades will include major pipe improvement and innovative green infrastructure projects.
Come hungry to learn and eat – lunch will be provided!
When: Monday, April 29, 2013, 12:00-1:00pm
Where: SFPUC Headquarters, 525 Golden Gate Avenue, 2nd Floor, O’Shaughnessy Room
