|Construction is now complete!
We would like to thank the community for their patience while we worked to complete this green corridor. Join us Saturday, May 5 at 10 am for the Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor Walking Tour! Project team members will be available to answer your questions about bicycle and pedestrian safety improvements, green infrastructure technologies and how they will be maintained.
Improving our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community
The Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor is a partnership of the SFPUC and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), located along the iconic “Wiggle” bicycle route and the Lower Haight, Alamo Square and Duboce Park neighborhoods.
This project integrates traffic calming with innovative green infrastructure technologies to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer system. During heavy rains, this can overwhelm the system and result in neighborhood flooding. Phase 1 of the Wiggle at Oak and Fell Streets was completed in 2015 and includes rain gardens and permeable pavement. Phase 2 was completed in 2018 and includes rain garden bulb outs along the corridor to Church and Duboce.

About the SSIP
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) recently launched the Sewer System Improvement Program (SSIP), a 20-year citywide investment to upgrade our aging sewer system and provide a more reliable, sustainable, and seismically safe system now and for future generations. The SSIP includes a series of facility upgrades at the Southeast Treatment Plant (SEP) located in the Bayview neighborhood of San Francisco. Click here to learn more about the SSIP.
