A trip down the SF sewers...

We all know that San Francisco is unique: the hills, the fog, the people, and last, but not least, its combined sewer system. What that means, everything that flushes down the toilet, flows through a drain or runs off the streets is collected and treated. See for yourself:

Have you ever taken a walk by the Great Highway or the Embarcadero? Check this short clip to see what's hidden underneath both of these and their role on our sewer system.

Throughout the month of July we will show you how our actions impact our sewer system and community. Next week: What can go down the drain and what shouldn't?
