Silicon valley clean water $495m infrastructure project milestone celebrated with firsthand look at tunnel boring machine before it begins two years of work underground

Local officials celebrated a major project milestone of the Silicon Valley Clean Water (SVCW) $495M Regional Environmental Sewer Conveyance Upgrade (RESCU) Program by gaining a firsthand look at the 16- foot diameter Tunnel Boring Machine before it begins two years of work underground.

In addition, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the closing of a Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loan that will help finance this project to protect public health and the San Francisco Bay while creating local jobs and reducing project costs. Local officials placed the name of the machine on the TBM exterior before it is fully assembled underground to begin boring 2.4 miles under the Redwood Shores Parkway right-of-way in City of Redwood City to further the infrastructure program.
