Join Andy Thornley (SF Bike Coalition), Peter Brastow (Nature in the City), Elizabeth Stampe (Walk SF), and the SF Planning Dept.'s Kearstin Dischinger to critically...

Weâll look the possibilities of a radically different relationship to our local water supplies, including our aquifer, creeks and rainfall. But most of San Franciscoâs water is supplied by the Tuolumne River, which flows through a series of reservoirs, aqueducts and tunnels to our taps. These facilities are being rebuilt now, along with yet another massively expensive sewer system overhaul. Joel Pomerantz, Spreck Rosenkrans (Environmental Defense Fund), Ruth Gravanis.
