On April 18th, the SFPUC began adding groundwater from the Westside Aquifer to our Hetch Hetchy drinking water supply. This groundwater has unsafe levels of contaminants and is only minimally treated. It should not be used for drinking.

Tell the SFPUC to stop mixing contaminated groundwater with our good drinking water!

Demand that:

  • All San Francisco drinking water must meet or exceed our current Hetch Hetchy water quality.
  • Groundwater should not be used for drinking water.
  • Use groundwater for irrigation, firefighting, and street cleaning.
  • The SFPUC must develop a plan to provide an adequate supply of high-quality drinking water during an emergency until full service is restored.

    it's crazy that SF diverted water from the Aquifer rather than use the abundant water from Hetch Hetchy. I can guarantee you that if SF continues to use aquifer water, salt water will get into the aquifer and SF will cause a regional disaster.

    Considering that the Bay Area is known to have heavy metals contamination, it should be obvious that it is not a good idea to mix local ground water into the drinking water we receive from the Hetch Hetchy reservoir.
