The Embarcadero Seawall is the foundation of over three miles of San Francisco’s waterfront from Fisherman’s Wharf to Mission Creek. The Seawall is over 100 years old and in desperate need of repair.
The Seawall supports key utility and transportation infrastructure including the BART, Muni, and ferry transportation networks. It also supports critical emergency response and recovery areas on the Embarcadero and provides flood protection for downtown San Francisco.
The Seawall underpins the Historic Embarcadero Promenade, many of the city’s iconic destinations, parks, and local businesses – attracting more than 24 million people to the waterfront each year. All told, the Seawall supports over $100 billion in economic activity and assets along the waterfront.
