Progress on multibillion-dollar water project called “reasonable” 

Reasonable progress has been made on a $4.6 billion project designed to protect San Francisco and Peninsula water supplies, a panel of experts concluded.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission hired five experts to review progress on its Water System Improvement Program and to offer suggestions for improvements.

“Given the constraints of municipal bidding, environmental reviews, stakeholder interests, and the diversity and complexity of the program, the panel concurs that the progress made to date is reasonable for a multibillion-dollar program for a large municipality,” the panelists concluded in a report released Tuesday.

The panel praised the SFPUC for hiring top talent and for its relationships with unions. It also suggested improvements for the project’s reporting practices.
