Sunnydale Green Infrastructure

San Francisco, CA

The Sunnydale Green Infrastructure  project is one of eight Early Implementation Projects that will be constructed in San Francisco’s urban watersheds as part of the San Francisco Public Utility Commission’s (SFPUC) Sewer System Improvement Program.  The project, currently in the design phase, implements green stormwater infrastructure at two community designations within the disadvantaged neighborhood of Visitacion Valley.

This project is estimated to remove 0.8 million gallons of stormwater per year from the combined sewer system during a typical rainfall year and reduce the peak volumes by nearly 90% during the level-of-service storm.  The project will serve as one of the first public green infrastructure projects constructed in the City of San Francisco and help inform future green infrastructure efforts within the City and the extended Bay Area.
