SVCW is a water resource recovery facility meeting the highest technical, environmental, and safety standards in California. Built in 1980, the SVCW facility enables wastewater to be recycled using state-of-the-art biological treatment. Clean water is available for reuse and the fragile ecosystem of the San Francisco Bay is protected for current and future generations to enjoy.
There are four jurisdictions that own SVCW - the cities of Belmont, Redwood City, and San Carlos, along with the West Bay Sanitary District. Each appoints a member of their council or board to represent the jurisdiction on the SVCW Commission
