Providing drinking water to over 2.5 million people in the Metropolitan San Francisco area
How to green treatment plants are some of the most expensive and complicated capital projects undertaken by public agencies. When the plant supplies drinking water to more than 2.5 million people, the stakes are even higher. Stantec exceeded difficult design requirements and helped the owner save significant public funds while delivering the project ahead of schedule.
At 315 million gallons per day, the facility is one of the largest UV disinfection drinking water plants in North America and the largest in California. A facility of this size normally takes up to four years to complete – working in partnership with the contractor on a design-build team, we completed the project in two years and three months.
The facility meets California Title 24, the strictest energy code in the country. The operations, UV process area, and electrical building were combined into a single LEED Silver certified facility, reducing capital costs and improving operability and maintenance. The plant is designed to be robust and low maintenance, while satisfying seismic design criteria that are necessary for this post disaster structure.
Client Appreciation"On behalf of myself and SFPUC I greatly appreciate being part of the Project and working alongside fantastic Stantec Professionals. In my 26 years of working in this profession, this project of all projects has stood out for me mainly due to the individuals from both Stantec and PCL that I have worked with in which I have a great respect for and continue to enjoy our friendship and camaraderie long after the project." Bijan Ahmadzadeh, City Regional Construction Manager
