Palo Alto backs Gilroy against water district

Original post made on May 12, 2010

The article about the SCVWD redistricting map states: "The new districts are unlikely to have any major impacts on Palo Alto, which belongs to a coalition of cities that get their water from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, not the Santa Clara water district". True for your drinking water, but the SCVWD also supports flood protection and stream stewardship as part of its primary mission. Surely these are of concern to Palo Alto.
