Construction on El Camino Real Starts August 12

Beginning Monday, August 12, City contractors will be installing a new sewer pipe on El Camino Real between Warren Road and State Street. This is part of City-wide efforts to increase the capacity of the sewer system and help prevent overflows that occur during storms. Work will take place between 9am and 3pm, and will last approximately two weeks. On El Camino Real, one lane in each direction will be kept open during this work. Street parking along portions of Warren Road and State Street will be temporarily affected during work hours only, and “No Parking” signs will be posted in these areas in advance of the work.  Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your sewer system!   


Site Preparations for WWTP Upgrades Begin on August 19

Phase 1 of the San Mateo Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrades will begin on August 19. The Clean Water Program is the most significant upgrade to the City’s sewer infrastructure in its modern history. Once completed, the WWTP will produce high-quality treated water that will meet new water quality regulations and benefit the City’s residents, future generations, the local environment, and the San Francisco Bay Community.
