The Bay Area Water Works Association is a non-profit association comprised of persons in the water works and related industries in the north, east and south San Francisco Bay areas.
Spanning over 1.5 acres, the SF Bay Model was built by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1957 to simulate tides and currents from the Pacific Ocean, to Sacramento and Stockton, including San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bays, and a portion of the Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta. The model can simulate tides 100 times faster than nature, and was used in scientific research until 2000 to assess the impacts of human activity on the bay. The SF Bay Model continues to operate as a public education center.
