The Wastewater Treatment Plant construction is making great progress. The first stage of pile driving activities to support the expanded facility began in July 2020 and will be completed on Dec. 23, 2020. The second stage of pile driving is expected to resume in summer 2021 and should take two and a half months. Additional information will be provided prior to the start of stage 2 pile driving activities to ensure property owners and occupants are well informed about the project and the construction schedule.
As part of the Wastewater Treatment Plant project, the Anchor Road Passive Open Space is now in use for temporary construction parking, a decision approved by the City of San Mateo Park & Recreation Commission and San Mateo City Council prior to construction. Limited public parking is available, and bike and pedestrian access will always be maintained.
Construction crews will utilize this space until November 2023. Crews are committed to keeping our very important project on track and we’re very pleased to see their work progress. Once construction is complete, we’ll remove the temporary construction parking.
You can watch the new buildings come to life via live camera feeds on our WWTP page.
The City of San Mateo Clean Water Program invites you to join us for a virtual community meeting about the Underground Flow Equalization System Project. The meeting is scheduled for Dec. 21 at 6 p.m.
Phase 2 of the project began in November, and includes installation of the shoring equipment, excavation, and dewatering at the San Mateo County Event Center site. Work on the diversion pipeline along Delaware and Saratoga will start in early 2021. The upcoming work will include additional equipment and heavier construction at and around the Event Center.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with a presentation informing the community about details of upcoming construction activities, anticipated timeframes, and traffic plans. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the project leads. The meeting will be recorded, and video will be posted to our website after the meeting.

Construction of the El Camino Real Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation Project began in December 2020. This project is part of the City of San Mateo’s Annual Sewer Rehabilitation Program for the overall wastewater collection system. Improvements to the City’s sewer system will help prevent sewer overflows, as well as help the City comply with regulatory requirements.
The total construction route is approximately 4.3 miles. This project consists of the rehabilitation or replacement of sewer pipeline that varies in size from 6-inch to 18-inch. The project also entails rehabilitation of 79 manholes. Most of the repairs will be spot repairs and lining work, with some segment replacements. The rehabilitation work will be performed at multiple sites within the City streets, including some in high-traffic areas. Mitigation measures will be in place to minimize the effects of the project on residents, businesses, commuters, and others. Notifications have been sent to ensure property owners and occupants are well informed about the project and the construction schedule.
