Mission and Valencia Green Gateway Sewer System Improvement Program
San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), CA
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) invited the public to help plan and design a new stormwater management project in the Mission District. The Mission & Valencia Green Gateway is one of eight green infrastructure projects that the SFPUC will construct, monitor and evaluate as part of its Sewer System Improvement Program. Located along Valencia Street between Cesar Chavez and Mission Streets, this project features green infrastructure technologies to naturally capture stormwater before it enters the combined sewer system.
MetroQuest was used in two phases to educate the public and collect a wide range of feedback on visual preferences, green infrastructure options, priorities, and areas of concern. Based on the overwhelming success of this project, six other similar projects in other parts of the city were initiated using MetroQuest.
