New Investments in San Francisco’s Seawall

San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee has announced the investment of $8 million over the next two years to initiate City efforts to fortify San Francisco’s seawall.

The end result will be a seawall that is more resilient and prepared to protect an area that stretches from Fisherman’s Wharf and Telegraph Hill to South Beach and Mission Creek against the dual threats of earthquake and sea level rise.

“San Francisco has a history of solving our challenges through bold action, and our investment in San Francisco’s seawall will help our world class waterfront be more resilient to a major seismic event and flood risks,” said Mayor Lee.

“San Franciscans built the Seawall a century ago, and it is our generation’s turn to invest again to strengthen this critical piece of infrastructure.”

The $8 million investment will allow the Port to advance technical studies and engineering feasibility, engage stakeholders and the public in decision making, seek other sources of funding and conduct project environmental review.

The Seawall Initiative is a major effort to follow the City’s resiliency strategy, Resilient San Francisco – Stronger Today, Stronger Tomorrow.
