Improved Street Safety Near BES

Printer-friendly version

A few months ago, the City’s Complete Streets Safety Committee discussed improving visibility at the intersection of San Bruno and Alvarado, which is the block before Brisbane Elementary School when heading up San Bruno.  Last Thursday, the City’s contractor completed the painting of white chevrons or diagonal lines which indicate no parking at all 8 curb returns to improve the safety of pedestrians, for both children and adults alike.  After the work was completed, city staff determined that a few more chevrons were put down on the roadway than originally planned.  Thus, the contractor will be back out in early December to rectify the situation, which will also result in a few parking spaces being added back to the street.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as this issue is resolved.  For any questions about this project, please contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

Drinking Water Taste & Odor Concerns?

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE 11/19, 12:38pm - The SFPUC placed a segment of pipeline into service on 11-17-16 after routine maintenance activities.  Some customers in South San Francisco, Brisbane, and the southern portion of San Francisco may experience temporary taste and odor issues because of stagnant water that was in this pipeline.  The SFPUC has flushed water in its service area to correct this problem.  Additionally, the SFPUC has collected and analyzed water samples from the service area and determined that Federal and State drinking water standards are being met. 

***

On Friday, city staff received several citizen complaints of taste and odor issues coming from their faucets.  After conducting a review of our internal operations and finding no likely cause for these issues, we contacted our wholesale supplier, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, which provided the statement below on Friday evening. 

The SFPUC placed a segment of pipeline into service yesterday after routine maintenance activities.  Some customers in South San Francisco, Brisbane, and the southern portion of San Francisco may experience temporary taste and odor issues because of this activity. The SFPUC is in the process of collecting water quality samples in its customer complaint areas to evaluate this event. The system should return to normal over the next 24-48 hours.
