Upcoming Meetings on the Underground Wastewater Storage Facility and Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrades

The San Mateo community is invited to attend two upcoming meetings regarding the selection of the underground wastewater storage facility location and updates to the City’s wastewater treatment plant project.

At the 5:30 p.m. Public Works Commission Study Session on July 12, Staff will further discuss impact mitigation measures that may be utilized for the underground storage facility project. A separate Staff update will be given on the proposed improvements to the City’s wastewater treatment plant.

At the 7:00 p.m. City Council Meeting on July 17, Staff will present the evaluation of two site alternatives for the underground storage facility, and request the Council accept the staff and Public Works Commission recommendation to select the San Mateo County Event Center. In January 2017, the Council identified the City’s Corporation Yard and the San Mateo County Event Center as the two site alternatives for the underground storage facility to be further evaluated for final selection.

Private Sewer Lateral Cost-Sharing Program

Did you know that City of San Mateo provides grants to property owners for 50% of the cost of a full sewer lateral replacement (from where it exits the structure to the main line connection) with a maximum grant of $5,000? 

All types of properties (residential, commercial, multi-family, etc.) in the city of San Mateo are eligible for the lateral replacement cost sharing as part of the Private Sewer Lateral Cost-Sharing Program. Spot repairs and partial repairs are not included in the cost-sharing program.

Applications for fiscal year 2017-18 are now available.
