 Flow Monitoring

The District has 17 flow monitoring stations located throughout the District to monitor wastewater flows to the Silicon Valley Clean Water Treatment Plant located at Redwood Shores. These flow metering sites require periodic maintenance and calibration which is performed by District personnel.

WBSD personnel perform Confined Space Entries to inspect the flow monitoring components condition and calibration accuracy of the equipment.
