Water Storage Project:
Lower Crystal Springs Dam Improvements
The Lower Crystal Springs Reservoir System is the primary water storage facility for emergency backup and supplementary water supply for the entire San Francisco Peninsula. This WSIP project included critical improvements effectively increasing the water capacity of the Upper and Lower Crystal Springs Reservoirs to 22 billion gallons.
ECS’s cost, scheduling, and office engineering roles on the Construction Management team helped keep this complex project on budget and on schedule. The American Public Works Association (APWA) Northern California Chapter awarded this project its 2013 Project of the Year (for projects between $5 and $25 million). Successful completion of the dam improvements within the constricted construction window minimized environmental impact and now assures that the SFPUC can provide minimum water service to one million residents of San Francisco and San Mateo County within 36 hours of a major earthquake.
