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.

    I do not like the new taste
    My water filter used to last 6 months now lasts 6-8 weeks

    This is outrageous! San Franciscans paid for and developed the water system we have today so WE could be assured of a dependable source of high quality drinking water. If you want to export water to the suburbs, send them our groundwater.
    Groundwater should be used in SF for irrigation ONLY! This "blended" water stinks of decomposing materials when it comes out of our taps!

    The water's taste is way worse now. Any water added should be pollutant-free to begin with. Do not rely on dilution to add crappy water to our formerly pristine supply.
