"By providing critical funding support for our Emergency Firefighting Water System, this bond measure will help ensure that the City is ready and prepared for major fire events, including those that may occur following an earthquake. When we support long-term capital programs like the ESER Bond, we make San Francisco a more resilient place now, and for future generations."
ESER 2010 and 2014: Progress Made
Since the passage of ESER 2010, the City has implemented projects to increasingly improve the Emergency Firefighting Water System’s seismic reliability and range of coverage. With previous ESER funds, critical reliability upgrades were made at the three primary water sources: Twin Peaks Reservoir, Ashbury Heights Tank and Jones Street Tank. Upgrades also were made to Seawater Pump Station #1, which is one of the secondary sources of water for the system. Structural and seismic upgrades to Seawater Pump Station #2 began in late 2018 and are estimated to be complete in 2020. Bond funds also paid for the construction of 30 new cisterns, 15 of which are located in the Sunset and Richmond districts, and used to improve and expand the water system’s pipelines and tunnels. Six pipeline and tunnel projects have been completed to date, with seven more currently in planning, design or construction.
