Mission Valencia Green Gateway Final Design Concept Presentation

From SFPUC:

The Mission & Valencia Green Gateway is a partnership of the SFPUC, Planning Department, and Department of Public Works, located along Valencia Street between Cesar Chavez and Mission streets.

This project will feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include rain gardens, permeable pavement and bulb outs to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer system, which overwhelms the system and may result in neighborhood flooding.

Community feedback from the two workshops and online surveys helped the project team develop a final design concept. We want to show you what we’ve come up with – join us Wednesday, November 13 for an evening presentation and open house at Fairmount Elementary School (65 Chenery Street).

Touring San Francisco’s Historic Sewer System

|
The Mission is more than just a meeting point for different cultures: it’s also a meeting point for different waters. Hundreds of years ago, two water sources converged along what is now Folsom Street. During rainy season, fresh water flowed east down from Twin Peaks, aligning roughly with today’s 14th and 18th Streets. Those streams […]
