New Website Security Certificate Information

The American people expect government websites to be secure and their interactions with those websites to be private. When visiting the Navy’s website, expect a security certificate message.

The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-15-13, “A Policy to Require Secure Connections across Federal Websites and Web Services” requires that all publicly accessible Federal websites and web services only provide service through the use of a secure connection. The strongest privacy and integrity protection currently available for public web connections is Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) which many commercial organizations have implemented to protect visitors to their websites and services.

The Federal government and NAVFAC are adapting to this changing landscape. The NAVFAC Public website implemented Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) in January 2017. These Certificates ensure that your computer can recognize and guarantee the integrity of the connection between the NAVFAC Web site and your computer. If you choose NOT to take advantage of installing these certificates, you will receive a certificate warning page indicating “There’s a problem with this websites security certificate” each time you connect to this site. Additionally, you should update all bookmarks that you may have saved to specific pages to reflect this change in protocols. Instructions on how to install the Department of Defense (DoD) Certificates is provided below.

If you have any questions about this procedure or problems downloading the certificate after following the instructions, please contact disa.meade.re.mbx.iase-website@mail.mil. If you would like a copy of the PDF document with the instructions (see below) emailed to you, please call the HPNS Info Line at (415) 295-4742 or send an email to info@sfhpns.com

Notice of Environmental Review for the SFPUC’s Southeast Plant Headworks Replacement Project

Attached below, please find information regarding the Notice of Availability of and Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission’s proposed Southeast Plant Headworks Replacement Project, which consists of modifying and improving the existing Southeast Plant (SEP) preliminary treatment process facilities located in the Bayview District of San Francisco.

Accordingly, a Preliminary Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared.

Public recommendations for amendment of the text of the finding, or any appeal of this determination to the Planning Commission (with $562 filing fee) must be filed with the Department within 30 days following the date of this notice. In the absence of an appeal, the Mitigated Negative Declaration shall be made final, subject to any necessary modifications, 30 days from the date of this notice.
