Underground Flow Equalization System

UFES Newsletter – December 9, 2020

UFES Virtual Community Meeting Welcomes You

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. If you are unable to participate in the live event, you can view the recording and submit any questions or comments about the presentation to us at, or call the UFES hotline at 1-650-522-7250.

After registering, you will receive your unique link and passcode to the Zoom webinar, as well as automatic reminders ahead of the meeting.
