Vallejo Ferry Maintenance Facility; Vallejo, Ca
Rep. George Miller (CA-7) requests $4,750,000 for:
San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority
Pier 9, Suite 111, The Embarcadero
San Francisco, CA 94111
The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) is expanding Bay Area ferry services, including seven new routes and improvements to current systems. The requested funding will be used to construct a new ferry maintenance facility located in Vallejo, CA to provide storage for parts and equipment and to serve as an operations center, waterfront infrastructure for mooring 6 vessels, and installation of a 48,000 gallon fuel storage and delivery system, representing a 14 day supply of fuel for current Vallejo ferry operations. The fuel storage capacity will be essential to the Water Emergency Transportation Authoritys (WETA) emergency response capabilities because the facility currently can't store more than one day's supply of fuel. This project will create 30 to 40 construction jobs and will preserve approximately 35 full time permanent family-wage jobs once the facility is in operation.
