The article reports that after three years of planning, permitting, design and initial construction work, San Francisco's largest capital project ever, $4-billion seismic improvement program, is shifting into high gear. Later in the summer of 2006, the prequalifying construction contractors for more than $4 billion of work to upgrade seismic reliability and water quality in the lower, "down-country" half of the Hetch Hetchy Water System will be started by the city's Public Utilities Commission. The Water System Improvement Program is scheduled to be completed by 2014.
