A construction contract to improve drainage at Fisherman’s Wharf to help keep fish guts out of the Bay is poised to be approved by the Port of San Francisco.
The Port secured $1.8 million earlier this year in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to pay for the drainage project, which Dolphin Club members and other users of Aquatic Park have long sought.
Fish slime, scales and entrails are presently hosed off Pier 45 by fishermen into the Bay, where they create pollution problems.
The drainage improvements will instead see that waste flushed into the sewer.
Port of San Francisco commissioners on Tuesday are scheduled to approve a $1.4 million construction contract with A&B Construction Inc.
