Cause and Effect- San Francisco Weather Extremes and Sewer Spills

San Francisco residents are happy to see spring weather arrive as winter brought episodes of more rain and fog, along with cooler temps. While this was preceded by a stretch of drier weather, the city has had a winter that has been predominantly a ‘water year’. So much so that over one-hundred sewer overflows, within the last several months, are attributed to this. The amount of waste in the waterways, stemming from these overflows, has also been a cause for concern. To anyone entering the water, it is advisable to wait for approximately three days after heavy rainfall. In most instances, rainwater infiltrated leaky pipes and overwhelmed the system. Fortunately, San Francisco Bay has become much cleaner overall than it was over fifty years ago due to pollution controls and upgrades to sewer plants.

An important measure homeowners can take is to replace leaky lateral sewage pipes that allow rain to seep into and over burden the sewer systems.
