The City of Burlingame owns, operates, and maintains the local sanitary sewage collection and treatment facilities. The network of pipes that collect sewage, which covers approximately six square miles and serves 9,000 customers (see Figure IF-2), consists of approximately 100 miles of gravity sewers, seven pump stations, and 15,800 linear feet of force mains. The wastewater collected is treated at the Burlingame Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) on Airport Boulevard, which has a secondary treatment capacity of 15 million gallons per day (which includes wastewater treatment for the neighboring Town of Hillsborough). The WWTP underwent upgrades in 1994, 2006, and 2011. Treated effluent from the plant (that is, the outflow) is transported by intertie pipeline through the cities of Millbrae and San Bruno to a regional outfall into San Francisco Bay located off Point San Bruno near South San Francisco.
Provide sufficient wastewater collection and disposal infrastructure to meet current and future community needs.
