Construction on the Alameda Creek Watershed Center in Sunol Resumes

The SFPUC has resumed construction on an interpretive center on our watershed lands in unincorporated Alameda County.

Located adjacent to the Sunol Water Temple in the East Bay at the historic confluence of two creeks, the Alameda Creek Watershed Center will explore the confluence of people and nature and the significance of water in sustaining both. The Watershed Center’s design and programming will raise awareness of, and appreciation for, the natural and cultural history of the Alameda Creek Watershed and the Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System.

Pre-construction activities began in March 2020, but were temporarily put on hold due to public health orders related to the coronavirus pandemic. Construction activities re-started on May 11th after Bay Area Health officers loosened restrictions on construction activities. Crews on site follow strict safety measures to protect the health of our workers and the public. These include daily screening, increased sanitation on site, social distancing, and the wearing of masks if work is in a confined area closer than 6 feet. Construction of the center is scheduled for completion in March 2022.

The entire area accessed by Temple Road, including the Sunol Water Temple, Sunol Yard, and Sunol AgPark remains closed to the public until construction completion.
