Voting closed — we’ll post results as soon as we get them.

If you haven’t voted yet in Participatory Budgeting, please do it today. These are local projects designed for your neighborhood, by your neighbors (see Sunnyside’s list below)—but they don’t get funded without your vote. http://sfpbd.sfgov.org/district/7/vote. Voting season is open until midnight, Saturday Apr 14. All District 7 residents can vote. (Don’t know if you are D7? See map.)

Four projects were developed by Sunnyside residents, and will have a direct impact on our neighborhood–but only if they get enough votes. We did it last year, we can do it again. Please Vote for Sunnyside!  http://sfpbd.sfgov.org/district/7/vote.

City Hall flooded with complaints over SF’s new mixed drinking water

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.

During the two-hour hearing Wednesday, mothers worried about the impacts on their young children, some residents said they felt like guinea pigs and others referred to the added groundwater as contamination. Some are calling on The City to halt the effort altogether.     (more…)
