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…)

The votes are in from the recent round of District 7 Participatory Budgeting — and the Sunnyside pedestrian safety proposal got a fantastic number of notes — 892 — and came second in its category. As far as we know at this point, that secures the $120,000 needed to make those improvements happen. A big thank-you to all those who took the time to vote.

This is the package of improvements that SNA helped draft, working with Sunnyside Elementary School PTA, Friends of Monterey Boulevard, and other local residents. Congratulations are due all around! Details on what we asked for below.
