The Gravity Pipeline (GP) Project consists of the design, construction, permitting, start-up, commissioning, and closeout of approximately 17,600 feet of wastewater gravity FRP pipe inside a concrete-segment tunnel. The work includs three shafts and will interface directly with the Front of Plant (FoP) Project at the Receiving Lift Station (RLS). Work is being implemented under a Progressive Design-Build procurement process.

Key Decisions Made to Launch SVCW’s Long-Anticipated Gravity Pipeline Project
Silicon Valley Clean Water’s (SVCW) long-anticipated gravity pipeline project was authorized to begin one of its key site preparations in a series of actions by its four-member Commission.
The gravity pipeline project, which is to be constructed by tunneling from the north edge of Inner Bair Island to the new front of plant facilities at the treatment plant at 1400 Radio Road, is a major component of SVCW’s Regional Environmental Sewer Conveyance Upgrade (RESCU) Program. RESCU features conveyance system improvements to transport wastewater from four-member agencies’ collection systems to the wastewater treatment plant.
