Document Description
The proposed Biosolids Digester Facilities Project would construct new solids treatment, odor control, energy recovery, and associated facilities at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission's Southeast Water Pollution Control Plant located in the Bayview District of San Francisco. The SEP is the City's largest wastewater treatment facilities at the SEP are operating beyond their design life (some facilities are over 60 years old), rely on outdated technologies, are prone to disrepair, and negatively affect the community with respect to odors, noise, and visual quality. In addition, the existing digesters and other solids handling facilities are not designed to withstand the maximum credible earthquake on local faults. The SFPUC is proposing new facilities to provide a modern and efficient solids treatment system to ensure treatment reliability, maintain regulatory compliance, protect public health and safety, meet current seismic standards, and provide advanced odor control. As part of the project, the SFPUC also proposes beneficial reuse of all of the biosolids and biogas produced from the proposed solids treatment process.
