WE HAVE HAD THE REQUIRED RAINS TO QUENCH THE THRIST OF THE WATERSHED -THAT PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE - IN KEEPING THE ALL ROUND BALANCE -WHEN IT COMES TO WATER CONSERVATION.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) brags that it has the best water in the world - that statement has to be taken with a pinch of salt.

The water that the SFPUC brags about is Hetch Hetch water that lies 160 miles from San Francisco.

This precious water belongs to the Piutes and the Miwoks - so to brag and say that it is their water - is totally wrong - it as stolen from the First People.

Those that steal and lie have big mouths - and the Great Spirit sees it all. This nonsense has been going on for too long - and some one must speak up - for our precious resources are being abused.

The water was and is stolen - and that is a fact.

Secondly, here is San Francisco the many clean drinking pipes are rusty - many over 100 years old - if some of them are lead pipes - they are very, contaminated.

Thirdly with all the technology - in this year 2014 - the SFPUC is Smithsonian like - when it comes to conservation.

Thinking of nothing when thousands of toilets are flushed with - with clean drinking water - the First People do not approve of this sacrilege - but those that lie and steal - dubious and divisive - care not for they are spiritually - bankrupt.

Fourthly failing to mandate the newer facilities being built to have a dual system - pipes carrying clean drinking water from Hetch Hetchy and other pipes carrying recycled water.

More to flush the toilets, to water the plants, to wash the cars, wash and clean the side walks and for other uses - where recycled water can be used.

In the last 20 years plus - the SFPUC has been behind our times when it comes to conservation of clean drinking water from Hetch Hetchy.

The Hetch Hetchy water -  that was stolen from the Miwoks and the Piutes - the  First People from the Yosemite area.

Now, the SFPUC wants to tap into the Watershed - that the SFPUC has not cared for - and mix that water with the Hetch Hetchy water.

Adding fuel to fire.

Trying once again to hoodwink the tax payers and constituents of San Francisco and the Bay Area - who pay for clean drink water from Hetch Hetchy.

Again and again I have to remind the SF Public Utilities Commission to read the Raker Act.

One can remind these Commissioners - but, they still fall behind the comprehension and Blue Print - purpose of mind.

Why the Hetch Hetchy dam was created in the first place - the many goals and objectives - laid by the Raker Act of 1913.

After the 1906 Earthquake and the great fire that took place - those powerful Congressmen from San Francisco - took the matter about the lack of clean drinking water to Congress.

Hence the Raker Act - the flooding of of the Hetch Hetchy Valley one of the most beautiful valleys in the world.

Disrespecting the First People - tribes like the Miwoks and Piutes who consider the Hetch Hetchy waters Sacred. The strangers would not know that - greedy and spiritually - bankrupt.

John Muir was against flooding the Hetch Hetchy Valley and creating the dam and reservoir. 

Those who had other plans - failed to listen to him - and in years to come John Muir died - despondent. May his soul rest in peace. One of the foremost and visionary environmentalist of our time.

Many environmentalists to this day - remember - John Muir but not the inept, shallow, lacking a sound vision - SF Public Utilities Commission - and their well know acts of buffoonery.

Again and again - the SFPUC will work against the law and against the wishes of the people.

Years ago the constituents of San Francisco passed a Ballot Measure - to upgrade the Clean Water Drinking Project today known as the Water System Improvement Project (WSIP).

This same Ballot Measure mandated to upgrade the Sewer System - known today as the Sewer System Improvement Project (SSIP).

The SF Public Utilities Commission with intent on approving the Bond Measure - focused on the WSIP - which today is nearing - the tail end - but with very serious issues.

As to the upgrading of the sewer system - the put that project on a back burner. Coming years later with a $7 Billion bond measure - this time - again talking about the impending Earthquake - but, no longer they got the money - the corruption began and is now is full force.

At Mountain Tunnel closer to the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir the dumb asses - have to deal with a very serious issue - the very destruction of Mountain Tunnel - due to cracks and deferred maintenance. 

It will take $100 million to fix the problem - and may be the only solution will be to build a new tunnel - to substitute - for the old Mountain Tunnel that served well all these years.

Until Mountain Tunnel met its fate with wear and tear - cracks in the wall - deferred maintenance - more in the last 20 years - with Management and others - not doing due - diligence. 

Some one has to go to jail - as these shenanigans - linked to the SF Public Utilities Commission - are getting from bad to worse. 

We remember the lousy work done by one Julie Labonte - who was in charge of the Infrastructure - the WSIP Project - who  has since jumped shipped.

We have serious problems with the Irvington Tunnel - brand new and build deep underground.

The pressure from the streams underground - have compromised large sections of the tunnel - high pressure - crushing the steel tunnel.

Shocking the living hell - the engineers trying to fix the problem - but facing the fact that they blew it - when they engineered this particular - tunnel - failing to comprehend the force of water and that the make up of the soil in the area.

Hydrologists who know more - had warned the Project Manager - but someone decided to take a risk.

To date - millions have been wasted - and no one - has the balls to take on the corrupt SF Public Utilities Commission - that keeps patting its - behind.

Where is Mayor Edwin Lee on these issues? 

Where is the Controller Ben Rosenfield on these issues? 

Where is the Chief City Engineer on these issues?

Where is the SF Board of Supervisors on these issues? 

You heard of the current buffoonery - well it plays to its fullest - with this clowns - trying to hoodwink the public at large - in broad daylight.

Millions of tax payers money wasted - and this crime - and disrespecting the constituents of San Francisco - must be taken to the highest level for adjudication.

Finally, Calavares Dam which for the longest time had earthen banks - was kept last in the pipeline to upgrade.

The new walls have clear fissures and cracks - over 2 million tons of dirt had to be removed - to reenforce the walls - thousands of tons of concrete poured to reenforce the walls. 

Astute geologists that I have spoken to say that it is just a matter of time - if the Big One strikes - the walls will give in - and the brand new Calavares Dam will be compromised.

The result the entire area known as Fremount will be inundated with several feet of water - thousands will perish - homes and other properties - destroyed. 

The SF Public Utilities Commission continues to pat their asses - even as these three large projects - have created very serious issues - linked to health, safety, compromised Quality of Life issues.

I challenge Juliet Ellis a very corrupt employee to address the above - much as she tries to hoodwink the constituents with her mundane projects - providing faucets from which children drink - once built no one maintains and keeps these faucets clean - more in these days of contagious - diseases.

Collecting fake statistics when it comes to Solar - wasting tax payers money.

Funnel two hundred thousand to her former non-profit Green For All - and caught with her hand in the cookie jar. 

Admonished by the Fair Political Action Committee - a State body - and the San Francisco Ethics Commission.

Juliet Ellis must be fired - let go - she still continues to adversely impact the constituents of San Francisco - carrying on her ploys and machinations - linked with the 1800 Oakdale - the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building. - in the Bayview.

The SF Public Utilities Commission is working diligently to mix ground water with our Hetch Hetchy water - trying to hoodwink the tax payers and constituents of San Francisco.

The SF Public Utilities has failed San Francisco - and more with lack of transparency and accountability.

No one can fool all the people - all the time - someone must step down and make room for sound leadership.

Good leaders know the way, show the way, and go the way.
