We have recently updated our website to include an interactive map, showing all Clean Water Program work throughout San Mateo.     


Temporary Traffic Detour at S. Norfolk St. and Fashion Island Blvd.

From April 27 to April 30, traffic detours will be in place at the intersection of S. Norfolk St. and Fashion Island Blvd. Work will be conducted between 8 AM and 5 PM.  


Wastewater Treatment Plant Project Update

The wastewater treatment plant upgrade and expansion project is the largest component of the Clean Water Program. Once upgraded, the plant will discharge high-quality treated water that meets state and federal water quality regulations. This project will be done in three phases over five years. Phase 1 began in 2019, and Phase 2 is anticipated to start this summer.     


Progress on Laurie Meadows and Woodbridge Pump Stations

Upgrade and rehabilitation of the Woodbridge pump station in Laurie Meadows Park will increase its capacity and reduce potential sewer overflows during storms. Work along Laurie Meadows Drive from 300 feet west of Suzie Street through about 100 feet north on Woodbridge Circle (see map) began in October 2019 and is expected to be completed by early fall 2020.      


Basin 1b Pipe Capacity Improvements Completed Ahead of Schedule

Basin 1b collection capacity improvements started in May 2019 and were completed in February – three months ahead of schedule! The work occurred in the central portion of San Mateo, in two areas, mostly from Edinburgh Street to 16th Avenue. More than 2,935 feet of existing sewer lines were replaced and upsized., and 3,260 feet of new relief sewer lines were installed. A 10-foot span of new pipe under Barneson Avenue was also installed. The rest of the project included rehabilitation and replacement work in downtown San Mateo on San Mateo Avenue, the alley between East 4th and East 5th Avenues (between San Mateo Drive and El Camino Real), and 9th Avenue between El Camino Real and Palm Avenue. The total length of repaired, rehabilitated, and upsized pipe is 9,340 feet.
