UFES Schedule Update – February 5, 2024
UFES Project Schedule for February 5, 2024 – March 4, 2024
We’re making great construction progress toward pollution prevention in San Mateo. The recent rainy season reminds all of us why our 10-year, $1 billion Clean Water Program is so essential to the future of our City.
One of the most important projects in the program is our Underground Flow Equalization System (UFES).
As a follower to this newsletter, you already know that construction is underway on our UFES at the County Event Center. Once completed, our UFES will eventually be the underground 5.3-million-gallon structure that will temporarily hold excess wastewater during storms.
The following construction work is planned for the UFES project from February 5, 2024 through March 4, 2024. (Please note, schedules can change. We will issue this update in the first full week of every month until the majority of significant work is complete):
- Inside the Event Center Site: Grading is complete. Contractor is preparing for paving.
- S. Delaware Street: Major traffic pattern changes will be complete in the next month; however, occasional minor traffic inconveniences may continue until the majority of significant project work is complete.
- Saratoga Drive: Major traffic pattern changes are complete; however, occasional minor traffic inconveniences may continue until the majority of significant project work is complete.
- Bay Meadows Park: construction of the retaining wall near Bay Meadows Park will continue.
Alerts will be sent via newsletter and text message ahead of work requiring traffic updates, work hour changes, or expected to generate excess noise at the Event Center site.

The majority of UFES-related pipeline work and resulting traffic impacts along South Delaware Street and Saratoga Drive are complete; however, occasional minor traffic inconveniences may occur. The City anticipates that the UFES project in its entirety, including work at the San Mateo County Event Center, will conclude in Spring 2024. Once the project is complete, it will be able to reduce the sanitary sewer overflows that result from excessive rainfall, which the community may have witnessed during the recent storms.
