Proposition F Public Debate: Water Sustainability+Envir­onmental Restoration Act

A Public Debate and Discussion for Proposition F:

“Water Sustainability and Environmental Restoration Act"

You are invited to attend a public debate and information session about San Francisco’s Proposition F: “Water Sustainability and Environmental Restoration Act.” If passed, this proposition would:

1) Require the City to prepare a 2-phase plan to evaluate how to drain the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and identify replacement water and power sources;
2) Allocate $8 million to pay for the plan and create a five-member task force to develop it;

3) Require the task force to complete the plan by November 1, 2015, and require the Board of Supervisors to consider placing on the ballot a Charter Amendment to approve the plan.

Speakers:
Mike Marshall- Restore Hetch Hetchy (For the Proposition)

Adrian Covert- Save Hetch Hetchy (Against the Proposition)

Jason Mark- Earth Island Institute (Moderator)

  • San Francisco is located on SF Bay at the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. This watershed contains the rivers of the Sierra Nevada, including the Tuolumne, the source of San Francisco's water.

  • The debate is an opportunity to ask some questions and learn about San Francisco's controversial proposition! Join us at the SF Main Library and discuss the future of water in San Francisco.

    This was a great event, with some amazing speakers talking about an incredibly important subject. Of course, there could have been more people but we only had a week to do outreach as this space is very rarely available and was booked pretty much up until the election. Thanks to Jason from Earth Island Journal, Adrian from Bay Area Council, and Mike from Restore Hetch Hetchy--and of course the audience!!

    Really informative. Pathetic attendance, though. I thought more people from SF would want to know about this issue.
