SFPUC OCEANSIDE RECYCLE WATER TREATMENT FACILITY PROJECT
 

Contact: Mayra Rodriguez, Project Engineer 

PROJECT DETAILS:

  • Project Location: San Francisco, CA

  • Client: San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC)/SJ Amoroso

  • Firm Role: Construction Management/Project Testing Coordination

  • Project Duration: 6 years

  • Project Value: $80 million

  • Delivery Method: Bid-Build

PROJECT IMPACT: 

Although the Oceanside Treatment Plant is the most recently constructed of the City’s three treatment facilities, the harsh marine environment surrounding the facility make it vulnerable to accelerated corrosion that reduces the life of the equipment and performance of the plant. The facility requires replacement or upgrades to maintain efficient operation and seismic reliability and to extend the useful life of the equipment.

The Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP) will address deterioration, system performance, and reliability of existing facilities of the OSP. The San Francisco Westside Recycled Water Treatment Facility at Oceanside Plant project specifically involves the construction of new structures incorporating new treatment processes for the west side of San Francisco’s water to be used for irrigation and other non-potable uses as well. The treatments to be built are microfiltration, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet light disinfection. The objective is to annually produce an average water of 1.6 million gallons per day.

  • Project Testing Coordination

 
SFPUC SOUTHEAST WATER TREATMENT PLANT DISTRIBUTED CONTROLS SYSTEM PROJECT

Contact: Gloria Ceron, Office Manager 

PROJECT DETAILS:

  • Project Location: San Francisco, CA

  • Firm Role: Quality Assurance, Administrative Support, Safety Management

  • Project Duration: 15 years

  • Project Value: $55 million

  • Delivery Method: Construction Manager/General Contractor     

PROJECT IMPACT: 

The Southeast Treatment Plant (SEP) is San Francisco’s largest and oldest wastewater facility, responsible for treating nearly 80% of the City's flow. Wastewater is transported to the SEP through a grid of transport/storage facilities, sewers, and five major pump stations. The SEP treats 57 million gallons per day (MGD) of wastewater and handles 160 wet tons of biosolids each day. During a rainstorm, it has the capacity to treat up to 250MGD of wastewater. Many parts of the SEP facilities represent dated technology and are operating well beyond their useful lives. This project will transform San Francisco’s largest wastewater treatment plant into a state-of-the-art resource recovery facility, a City destination, a proud neighborhood asset and an attractive workplace.

Through the Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP), the SEP will undergo operational improvements and seismic upgrades in order to ensure the reliability of the sewer system and protect the health of the surrounding community and environment. These improvements include the addition of new biosolids digester facilities, as well as new headworks facility; structural and seismic retrofits, upgrades to oxygen and influent pumps, odor control improvements, and architectural and landscape improvements to the perimeter.

Emerson has a contract to provide the Distributes Control System and the Ovation software to run the program. The new system will tie-in to all the equipment in the rehabilitated plant and provide state of the art controls and monitoring.  Emerson will work closely with the two contractor teams and integrate the complete control systems to run the plant.

BART WARM SPRINGS PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE PROJECT

Contact: Michael Rausch, Vice President/Director of Quality Management 

PROJECT DETAILS:

  • Project Location: Fremont, CA

  • Client: BART/Shimmick Construction 

  • Firm Role: Quality Management/Project Closeout 

  • Project Duration: 2 years

  • Project Value: $25 million

  • Delivery Method: Design-Build

 

PROJECT IMPACT: 

Since its opening in May 2017, Warm Springs Station has seen a health increase in its ridership into the station. With more than 4,100 riders on an average weekday, the ridership is expected to grow as more companies and employ set up shop near Warm Springs station. The City of Fremont, in coordination with BART, will build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Union Pacific tracks connecting the new plaza west of the station to the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station. The bridge and plaza will provide a direct connection from the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station to the City of Fremont’s Innovation District located west of the station, including residential developments that are currently under construction, and existing nearby businesses such as Tesla and Thermo Fisher. The plaza will provide a public space for the community with amenities such as seating, bicycle lockers, solar charging stations, an information kiosk, and public art.

 

The new bridge is comprised of two spans – a truss span and a cable-stayed span. Shortly after the truss span is in place, construction of the cable-stayed span, which will cross the remaining Union Pacific Railroad track, will begin. In addition to the bridge structure being tied into the Warm Springs/South Fremont Station, the construction project will modify signage, directional tile, guardrails and communications systems at the station, as necessary.
