UFES Schedule Update – March 7, 2022
We’re making great construction progress toward pollution prevention in San Mateo. Last year’s rainy season reminded 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 March 7 through March 21, 2022. (Please note, schedules can change. We will issue this update biweekly throughout 2022):
- Inside the Event Center Site: Off-hours work has been approved by the City of San Mateo for Mar. 9, 2022. Concrete pours to occur during off-hours (3 a.m. – 7 p.m.).
- Saratoga Drive and S. Delaware Street: equipment installation and removal related to pipeline work will continue along both Saratoga Drive and S. Delaware Street
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.
