Another improvement to the Hetch Hetchy water system was marked Saturday after the completion of three crucial projects and the re-dedication of the Mt. Davidson plaque during a ceremony at the park.
San Francisco Supervisor Sean Elsbernd along with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission celebrated the completion of three water system upgrade projects which included a new large water storage tank, a renovated water pumping station, and seismically-retrofitted water reservoir.
These projects took three years to complete and are apart of the SFPUC’s $4.6 billion Water System Improvement Program to upgrade and seismically-retrofit the Hetch Hetchy water system.
Elsbernd also rededicated a plaque to Mrs. Edmund "Madie" Brown, a woman who in 1926 organized to preserve Mt. Davidson as a public park for San Francisco.
