Project Summary

Cupertino Electric’s Public Infrastructure team is working with general contractors and trade partners to upgrade the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) Headworks facility. The SFPUC project, part of San Francisco’s Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP), will replace the 35-year-old Headworks building, modify the Bruce Flynn Pump Station and construct an odor control structure. According to the SFPUC website, 80% of San Francisco's water goes through the Headworks facility, which is the first step of treating wastewater by removing debris (like baby wipes) and grit (like sand) before it moves to the next step of the water treatment process. Because of the percentage of municipal water that goes through the Headworks facility, this wastewater treatment facility project is extraordinarily important to the health and well-being of San Francisco residents.
