This year, Palo Alto wasted 140 million gallons of groundwater
Original post made by Resident with a dead lawn, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Dec 14, 2016
This year 140 million gallons of groundwater were pumped and dumped for the construction of 8 residential basements. Each new basement dug in our area pumps and wastes between 10 – 30 million gallons of groundwater.
There are alternative ways of building basements that waste much less water.
Please help save our groundwater tonite at 6:00
Palo Alto’s Policy and Services Committee will vote on the 2017 dewatering regulations
