First Council Meeting of 2009 Taking Place this Coming Monday

Make any New Year's resolutions this year? Perhaps one of them could be getting more plugged in with the issues going on in the place you call home.

You can embark on just that this coming Monday (1/5) by attending the first City Council meeting of the year. Scheduled to take place starting at 7:30pm in the new Community Meeting Room at City Hall, the meeting will cover a vast array of important city issues, two of which will be a 5-year budget projection and an update on the Baylands planning process.

Also starting next Monday, you may experience some cloudiness in your tap water. This is due to there being air bubbles in the water, as the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir is receiving regular system maintenance and Peninsula cities are receiving their drinking water from the Sunol Valley Water Treatment Plant in the East Bay. Anytime there is an increase in the rate of treatment of water, the appearance will appear cloudy due to air being mixed into the water. If, however, the water is allowed to stand for a few minutes, the cloudiness will dissipate as the air bubbles rise to the surface and break apart. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) notes in their press release that "this temporary change involves the appearance of the water only," and that "SFPUC's water continues to meet all state and federal regulatory water requirements for water quality." Cloudiness in your tap water should only last through this month, when work at Hetch Hetchy is scheduled to be completed.
