San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

SFO / SF Bay Project 2000+

Organization: Alliance for a Clean Waterfront
2002 Grant Recipient - San Francisco County

Purpose

This grant was designed to address the water quality impacts of San Francisco Airport's proposed runway reconfiguration plans through a coordinated research strategy.

The Alliance for a Clean Waterfront (ACW) is a collaboration of environmental and community organizations in San Francisco that is leading a regional effort to follow up on the research recommended by the San Francisco Airport Science Panel regarding plans to expand the runways of San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

ACW caused SFO to generate comprehensive research regarding the potential impacts of its runway reconfiguration and expansion plans, and assisted in identifying and developing other alternatives to runway expansion that would have fewer adverse impacts on the San Francisco Bay estuary. Activities included:

  1. Completing research regarding all of the applications and permits that SFO must obtain for approval of its runway reconfiguration and expansion plans;
  2. Meeting with the interest groups and other contributing environmental and community groups to identify the specific research projects that SFO should generate;
  3. Meeting with SFO to develop a work plan and timetable for all of the research;
  4. Continuing to monitor and review the research, and ensuring that SFO modifies its plans in accordance with it.
