Water Education

For those of you wondering if we need an alternative source of water, please attend the SJC City Council meeting on Oct. 14. A presentation will be made by the Municipal Water District of Orange County on the state's water-supply system and the $25 BILLION plan to fix the Delta. Learn from the experts.

Please name the disaster there in Southern California that cut off water to residents for more than 14 days?

I will make it easier for you. Can you name one time that your town has been without water due to a natural disaster for 24 hours?

Mark Springer, So you are saying that we should not plan for any kind of disaster like an earthquake for instance? I feel that we should plan for these things. Do you feel that we should not be researching and developing alternative sources of water? Or do you feel MWD should be the only source of water which is mostly imported? Yes or no?

Thank you for answering zero of my questions to you For the fourth time, you have over a six month supply of water for an emergency. The planning has been done, implemented and the projects built. I have already already answered your question. Do you not read what I post? I am done trying to have an intelligent conversation with someone who makes posts and statements prior to completing any type of research.

Mark Springer, I do actually read what you write and I have answered your questions. I would suggest that you do the same. You can be done or you could actually read what others have written and actually respond to what was actually written and the actual questions without insults and that would be a conversation. Southern California is dependent on imported water. You seem to imply that since we have not had a major disaster that has impeded the flow from the North or the river or from local sources then we should not prepare for any disaster because it has never happened. Is that logical in your view? Many places all over the world and our nation have experienced devastating disasters that took a much bigger toll because they were not prepared for the disaster. Do you feel that we, in SJC, should not seek alternative back-up sources of water to MWD sources in case there is a break down in supply from either their regular source or their emergency source? Do you feel that SJC should not seek to recover its groundwater, encourage conservation and invest in a desalination plant? These will provide less dependency on water from the North and the river.
