Pipeline Construction Work Coming to Fremont

This fall, crews will begin work on the seismic upgrade of two water pipelines where they cross the Hayward Earthquake Fault in Fremont. The pipelines, known as Bay Division Pipeline (BDPL) Nos. 3 and 4, cross three traces of the fault near the intersection of Mission Boulevard and I-680. The goal of the project is to make sure that all of our Bay Area customers have reliable water delivery following a major earthquake.

Preparation work and pipeline work will begin near Crawford Street and Tissiack Way, including the installation of fencing and staging equipment.Environmental monitoring activity will take place along the SFPUC Right of Way and around the work area.

Before major construction activities begin this November, crews will perform environmental surveys of the project site. Also, modifications will be made to nearby electrical, sewer and water lines to avoid utility interruption during construction.
Overall construction is anticipated to be complete in summer 2014.

For more information, contact our 24-hour answering service at 866-973-1476 or e-mail djaimes@sfwater.org.

More updates to our construction activity will be distributed as the work nears.
