IN THE SOUTHEAST OF SAN FRANCISCO - NINETY PERCENT OF OUR DRINKING WATER PIPES ARE CORRODED - OUR INFANTS, CHILDREN, YOUTH, YOUNG ADULTS, SENIORS AND OTHERS WITH COMPROMISED HEALTH - PUT IN HARMS WAY.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - has FAILED the constituents of the Southeast Sector of San Francisco.

The drinking water pipes - ninety percent of them - are corroded - more the pipes are over 70 years old - and many of the water drinking pipes - lead.

At the many - San Francisco Public Utilities Commission meetings - the agenda items - most mundane - where the Commissioners are hoodwinked by the SF Public Commission Staff - be it on the Water System Improvement Project (WSIP).

The current Sewer System Improvement Project (SSIP) - the use of our Hetch Hetchy hydro-electricity meant for San Francisco - read the Raker Act of 1913.

The many deliberations about Clean Energy - without a  sound Business Plan and less a Risk Management document - worth the salt -  Barbara Hale trying to sell us the Golden Gate Bridge.

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has the ability to maintain the power lines -  more the high power lines.

The transmission lines - and the SFPUC must ask themselves - if they can maintain anything at all - and more provide quality service - when it comes to providing maintenance promptly and with sound standards.

Right now - when we call SFPUC to address any clean drinking water issues, any problems with the sewer - you must really be a witness - to see how long - it takes SFPUC to respond. 

Now, I know the people on the top - and even with those contacts - the response time is - ridiculous. 

The Southeast Sector of San Francisco - suffers from the worst type of customer service - and when it comes to our sewer pipes and more our clean drink water pipes.

The SFPUC gets its water from the Hetch Hetchy Reservoirs - the waster - belongs to the Piutes, the Pomos, the Miwoks - the strangers came - flooded the Hetch Hetchy Valley - against the wishes of John Muir - a leading environmentalists - for the thieves today - to take this - " millions of gallons of free water " - and sell it - and waste million of mundane stuff.

 I challenge the SFPUC - to evaluate the condition of the clean water drinking pipes - and post the results on the Internet - all over the Southeast Sector - from Potrero Hill - to Hunters Point - to the Bayview - to Little Hollywood, to Executive Park - to Visitation Valley - and for sure the SFPUC know more areas.

With intent - using procrastination as a ploy - thousands of innocent constituents - have been drinking so called clean drinking water - laden with lead- and other contaminants - from the rusty, corroded - carrying so called clean drinking water - through corroded pipes over 80 years old.

Our infants, our children, our youth, our young adults - our seniors  - those constituents who pay their taxes - but are NOT provided - clean drink water that is pure to drink.

SFPUC and those in charge - talk the talk - but have failed to walk the walk - you must watch them at the many SFPUC meetings - hoodwinking the public.

Soon the SFPUC will meet at their headquarters - to spell out some details - linked to their sordid - budget - linked to the Water System Improvement Project - and the Sewer System Improvement Project - let us see - how they reveal their line item budget - and how the fare over-all.

I would like to see how they will get over $90 million to rehabilitate the Mountain Tunnel Project.

 $10 million plus to address the problems with the Irvington Tunnel.

Other projects at Lake Merced, the Southeast Treatment Plant - with many over the board charges and changes.

The failed replacement of sewer pipes and clean drinking water pipes - there is real time statistics available - and if you ask for it - the crooks who are busy pussyfooting and hoodwinking - look at you funny.

The Task Force that met and came out with a plan - the Task Force linked to the Sewer System Improvement Project - negotiated 5% of the $6 Billion - funds set aside to replace the Digesters and address the failing in disrepair Sewer System Improvement Project.

5% of $6 Billion is $300 million - the SFPUC has to be transparent - how it spends this money.

The  money cannot and should not be spent by Juliet Ellis - who is still working - spreading  her corruption and stench - at all levels - treating those working under her - with disdain.

The Task Force earned the distinction to set aside $300 million - half of it for Community Benefits - and the other half for Workforce.

 NO where did the Task Force have a committee from the community to monitor how the money was spent. No where did the Task Force - think about Accountability and Transparency.
Sam Murray facilitated the meetings - and had failed the community one more time.

I know Espanola Jackson would not approve of such shenanigans - but Sam Murray and Harlan Kelley and others - think that the community has no one to think beyond the beyond.
Even as Espanola Jackson - spends her last days on this Earth.

Juliet Ellis took upon herself to send $200, 000 to Green For All - an organization that she worked for - in the East Bay - before joining the SFPUC - first as a Commissioner - and then as the Assistant General Manager of External Affairs.

From Commission to a paid position of Assistant General Manager of External Affairs - a clear Violation - conflict of interest - and illegal appointment - endorsed by the corrupt and crooks of the highest order - within the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Juliet Ellis is shameless - employing the wife of the present Director at Green For All - her past position at Green For all - such nonsense must STOP - and Juliet Ellis must be fired - now.

Juliet Ellis has already been fined by the Fair Political Action Committee and the SF Ethics Commission - she is looked upon with disdain by many who work hard and follow standards and ethics.

The SFPUC has been laying man holes - sewer and drink pipes in areas laden with Asbestos Dust - on Parcel A - at Hunters Point - actually two parcels West and East - and has not taken any action - to test the man holes, the pipes and reveal the results to the public at large.

Again and again these contaminants land at the Phelps Raw Sewage Treatment Plant - adversely impacting the environment - again and again - half-treated sewage is pumped into the Bay.

Right now with the heavy rains - this is currently, occurring.

Our sewage and its dual system linked to our sewer system and operations - takes in the raw sewage and the run-off from the rains - when the rain are heavy - the system we have now - fails - and has failed many times - before.

The WEIRS containing secondary effluents are compromised - many falling in disrepair - from differed maintenance and negligence - and not once - has the SF Public Utilities Commission - discussed this situation - ever.

The SF Public Utilities  Commission keeps having its meeting - never once discussing the pertinent issues that need to be addressed - always patting each other on their backs - thinking they are fooling the public - they are only fooling - themselves.

In the interim the SF Public Utilities Commission is one of the major agencies - contaminating and polluting our Bay.

Polluting the air with Methane gas - polluting our watershed - with the many corroded clean water drinking pipes over 80 years old and the same with the sewer pipes.

Our infants, our children, our youth, our young adults, our seniors - those with compromised health - deserve better.

A class suit is in order - and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - already has been sued and behind close door settle other cases - but this unique case - will expose and open a can of worms.

All new housing - more market rate housing - should, have to pay more for their sewer and clean water supply - 40% precent more - than the standard rate - if the developers cannot pay - let them take a hike. We do not need them here.

What do the corrupt developers - our City Planning - our Land Use Committee think?

The filthy rich and their million dollar condominiums - get their clean water and have no thought - from where they get the clean drinking wanter - the best in the world.

Who pays for the pipes and the infrastructure  - and why do we need - extra sewage to contaminate the Bay and the watershed.

This is Muwekma Ohlone land - and we do not want those that help to contaminate and pollute the land - including the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - to carry on nefarious activities - this is not your domain and you do not have Patrimonial Jurisdiction.

Stop your evil ways - or less you will see us - protest by your homes - and you will not like it. We know where you live . Aho.
