    The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) Wastewater Enterprise (WWE) operates and maintains San Francisco's combined sewer system to protect public health and the environment. These services extend across eight urban watersheds, over 1,900 miles of pipe, and benefit every resident and visitor of San Francisco.

    WWE operates three all-weather wastewater treatment plants, one wet-weather facility, 27 pump stations, eight transport/storage facilities, and 36 combined sewer discharge structures to treat an estimated 34.5 billion gallons of wastewater in a typical year. Of that 34.5 billion gallons, approximately 24 billion gallons per year receive full secondary treatment, 9 billion gallons per year receive primary or decant treatment and are discharged to deep-water outfalls, and 1.5 billion gallons per year receive the equivalent to wet weather primary treatment and are discharged through nearshore outfalls.

    In addition to treating wastewater, WWE also produces biosolids, a nutrient-rich soil-like product used as a synthetic fertilizer-replacement and soil amendment across the Bay Area.
