Please stop by and check in on the progress of the new tunnel.  Our project team is available to answer your questions and listen to your comments.  

Project Update
Over 13,100 feet (out of 18,660) has been tunneled to date.  Workers completed the installation of 102-inch diameter steel pipe at the Irvington Portal that will eventually carry drinking water from the Hetch Hetchy system to 2.6 million Bay Area customers. 

Installation of the waterline connection to the new tunnel at Irvington Portal near Mission Boulevard continues.  We expect the connection fully installed by January 11, 2013.

The New Year will also begin the countdown to the completion of tunneling.  Excavation is scheduled for completion mid-2013.  The steel pipe liner will go into the last sections of the tunnel by the Fall of 2013.

We look forward to seeing you at the open house!
