The City and County of San Francisco (City) is fairly unique in the west because it has a combined sanitary and storm water system. When the current Wastewater Master Plan (WWMP) was completed in 1971, it proposed collecting and discharging the treated combined wastewater flows to the Pacific Ocean. The majority of the components of the WWMP have been completed, but there is currently no provision for the conveyance and Ocean discharge of wastewater from the eastern or Bayside portion of the City. Options to reduce wastewater discharges to San Francisco Bay are now being analyzed.
