Green Scene: San Diego's Water Supply -- How Sustainable are we?

Water is one of our most precious resources. San Diego is at the end of 2 very long pipelines that supply 80% of our clean water: the Bay Delta Project and Colorado River Aquaduct. Both of these cross the San Andreas Fault which is due for another shake.

After 10 years we have approved a desalination plant in Carlsbad that will supply 10% of our water needs. What are the costs? what about conservation, and purple pipe re-use?

We have 2 local experts to educate us and take your Q & A:
Ken Weinberg: San Diego County Water Authority
Cathy Pieroni, City of San Diego Public Utilities Dept

    Ok I have to say I was pretty stoked. The Mayor of San Diego came, asked some great questions and had some good comments. But the best part was the interactive conversations between San Diego city and county water big wigs and its residents. I was really impressed at how the reps from the city and county were pushed by both residents and the Mayor to address new ideas to make San Diego's water supply more sustainable. I had no idea that San Diego was taking such innovative steps to reduce, reuse and improve our water supply.

    Would like to come, however have schedule conflict. I am harvesting rainwater and have got my water bill down to 1 HCF (for the 2 month cycle)!

    If the City of San Diego's new administration's denial on Jan. 4, 2013 of permit for Balboa's Park's Earth Day 2013, which is the largest environmental celebration in the country bothers you, send an email to [masked] before noon Monday!

    I sent an email and thought that perhaps you or someone in your group would like to respond to the Earth Day organizers in time for them to take it to the City on Monday.
