Stewards of Your Infrastructure
As National Public Works Week (May 19-26) winds down, our Public Works Department returns to the everyday tasks of infrastructure stewardship in the City. We’ve appreciated all the likes, hearts and shares on our social media posts this week. Here are a few recent examples of the work our staff does to keep San Mateo working.
Protecting the Lagoon
This spring, we completed regular maintenance on our Marina Lagoon Pump Station, then re-installed it to continue to efficiently regulate the lagoon water level. The pump station helps us keep the lagoon enjoyable for all. Visit our web page to check out this time-lapsed video of the re-installation and learn about the work of the Marina Lagoon Pump Station.
Residents along Shasta and Glendora drives will be pleased to know that the Clean Water Program’s work in the area, in collaboration with our road improvement teams, has now completed. About 2,000 feet of existing sewer pipes in the neighborhood were upgraded, and the paving completed. On the other side of town, road repair work funded by Senate Bill 1 (also known as the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017) completed the repaving of Hillsdale Boulevard from Saratoga Drive to S. Norfolk Street. Final touches are left, including painting the lines, before work concludes in early June.
Seeing the Light
In our ongoing work to convert old street light bulbs with more sustainable LED lights throughout the city, we will be upgrading lights in the Baywood neighborhood starting this summer. For more information about the City’s street lights and the conversion program, click here.
