An Environmentalists' Argument Against Draining Hetch Hetchy
I've commented before opposing current proposals to tear down the O'Shaughnesy Sam and drain the Hetch Hetchy Valley. That dam and its lake being a major source of water for the San Francisco Bay Area. In short, this state needs more water storage and infrastructure, not less.
We can't keep shutting off water supplies and count on "alternative sources". It's insane to think we can shut off one of the main sources of water for one of our largest populated areas without serious consequences. They'll have to get their water from somewhere. What other source in the state will they get it from?
I was glad to see an environmentalist make my argument, and others, against the draining of the Hetch Hetchy.
