City Hall flooded with complaints over SF’s new mixed drinking water
By Joshua Sabatini on May 25, 2017 1:00 am
Complaints are flooding City Hall as word spreads that San Francisco’s beloved Hetch Hetchy drinking water is being mixed with less pristine groundwater.
So many, in fact, that Supervisor Norman Yee was compelled to call Wednesday’s hearing to ask the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to address the myriad of concerns, from the safety of the water to the need for the change.
Four wells pulling up water 450 feet below in the West Basin Aquifer are in the testing phase and by summer to early fall, 1 million gallons daily of underground water will go into the system. The plan is to reach 4 million gallons daily by 2020, 15 percent of the water supply delivered to some 60 percent of the water users.
One well, located by Lake Merced, pumped water into the system over two days in April. The other wells will be tested in June and July.
