Blending Contaminated Water with Hetch Hetchy Makes it Safe To Drink Experts Say - SF Examiner, April 24, 2014
To add insult to injury for the people of San Francisco, a government employee was recently allowed to get away with peeing in the reservoir multiple times without losing his job. This ridiculous high pension PUC water manager employee, Martin Sanchez, merely got a 5 day suspension slap on the hand when he should have gotten his lame ass kicked out of a job!
"In a display of colossal disrespect for his $111,000-a-year maintenance planner position at the Public Utilities Commission, an adult man frequently urinated in a reservoir that is a source of drinking water for 2.5 million customers in the Bay Area. The Chronicle has word that the culprit named Martin Sanchez will likely be suspended without pay for five days as a result of the behavior that he was called out for in anonymous complaints" - SF Water Manager Peed In Reservoir At Work And Won't Be Fired - SF Examiner - February 9, 2015The city government of San Francisco completely failed to run an adequate marketing campaign to get its residents to curb their water usage. Why? Likely so it could implement its preferred plan to cause major construction projects to extract water from newly built polluted groundwater wells in the city. Yet the problem still remains because this response is really just a temporary band aid since groundwater will eventually run out.
I've been noting there's little to no enforcement of water hoarders and we're already about to enter the second quarter of 2015! For instance, the Huntington Park sprinklers run around mid day at the height of the sunshine and often saturate the ground into mud. No one cares!
California is still in the throes of an epic drought. But Bay Area water users are running taps, using hoses and watering gardens as usual, prompting warnings that The City is edging closer to mandatory water rationing in the coming months. Water use by Bay Area homes and businesses is at or above normal levels this year despite the ongoing dry spell and pleas from officials to conserve water, according to San Francisco Public Utilities Commission records.

The government's visionless and so willing to pollute the drinking water rather than implement water conservation and long term solutions. For instance, there was a profound lack of vision to ignore repairing the Hetch Hetchy water tunnel that's on the verge of catastrophic collapse.
Mountain Tunnel, a key part of the Hetch Hetchy water system - which supplies 2.6 million Bay Area residences and businesses - is at risk of a "catastrophic collapse" and will cost more than $100 million to repair or up to $630 million to replace, according to the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. City officials have known for 25 years that significant work is needed on the 19-mile-long tunnel just outside Yosemite National Park in a steep, hard-to-access wilderness area. They considered making it part of the PUC's decade-old, $4.6 billion water system improvement program, which is now more than 80 percent complete. But ultimately, the 89-year-old connector was left out of the rebuild, which focused on upgrading Bay Area water facilities that could fail in an earthquake. - Hetch Hetchy Water Tunnel in Danger of 'Catastrophic Collapse' - SFGate August, 2014
There's not enough scrutiny or resistance to these corrupt politicians anymore. Why is that? These government officials had decades to address the faulty Hetch Hetchy water tunnel system, but apparently it wasn't a priority and they are gambling with people's lives in the process while sucking up sewage water and throwing it into the purist water delivery system of the U.S.
Meanwhile, the PUC employee pees into the water system with a hand slap. Where's the public resistance to these stinking sewage runoff loving lunatics who make these crazy decisions while failing to address major problems of our antiquated water systems? Why don't people start asking questions and get involved before it's too late? There are idiots at the helm of our government!
Too busy watching the sports programs as danger looms! Too busy with their heads in the sand not doing their jobs while peeing in the reservoir!
