12:04 pm
would like to see, citing security concerns. but again, he emphasized they are dealing with this heightened risk and threat environment. and because of that, we have had to see this coordination and increase in coordination between federal officials here in washington dc and also state and local officials since we know that members constantly go back and forth between washington to their home districts. i can tell you that last year alone, it was reported there were nearly 10,000 threats against members of congress. and capital police say they are continuing to monitor thousands of these cases nationwide. and when it comes to these threats, the police chief of capital police says he would like to see these cases, more of them prosecuted. >> are there discussions or concerns about election violence as early voters start
12:05 pm
going to the polls? >> reporter: we saw a federal intelligence bulletin which warned of this heightened threat environment that extends through election day and also even the days and months beyond election day as counting will continue and some contests could be challenged or could go to recounts. this federal intelligence bulletin warned that domestic violent extremists across the ideological spectrum pose this heightened threat but it is important to know there are no specific threats currently right now. we spoke to one expert today who tracks political threats and violence and she says people should feel completely secure and confident about going out to vote. that this is, you know, things will be safe. she believes. but she will be keeping an eye on

12:12 pm
12:13 pm
california attorney general rob bonta was at the
12:14 pm
embarcadero putting pressure on plastic bag manufacturers to prove their bags can actually be recycled. he claims it doesn't appear to be the case. it is not just about the materials the bags are made out of. there also need to be enough infrastructure to collect and process the bags and a market to support the recycling costs. he says he sent letters to seven manufacturers giving them two weeks to prove their bags can be recycled or face potential fines. climate change in california is getting worse and fast. the state environmental protection agency looked at 41 different scientifically measured indicaters from more than 100 experts. they said the effects of high temperatures, unprecedented wild fires and an unrelenting drought are increasingly taking a toll. the report says a multiyear drought we are in, is one of the most
12:15 pm
detrimental effects. now we saw rain yesterday, while itwawelcome, it is a reminder of how dry it is tomorrow. and it is changing attitudes about how we think about a resource we once took for granted. as kpix5's john ramos shows us, a new generation of buildings are coming to san francisco that reimagine how water is used. >> reporter: this residential high-rise in san francisco is unique in that most of the water that goes into it never comes out. and it is setting a standard for what will be the future of building construction in the city. on days like this, we are reminds of how important water is. how precious is each drop. so why are we willing to waste so much of it? >> there is no reason we should be taking fresh water from hetch hetchy to flush our toilets in downtown san francisco. >> reporter: but that is not happening here. this 40 story apartment building on mission street known simply as 1550 opened in 2020. it was the first to comply with a 2016 law
12:16 pm
requiring large new buildings to have a water reuse system. the founder of a company called epic clean tech says after two years of testing, his system has become a model for what is possible in water conservation. >> by reusing 7,500 gallons per day, up to two-and-a-half million gallons a year, that is two-and-a-half million gallons less of fresh drinking water they have to bring into the building. >> reporter: water from sinks, showers, and laundry rooms is piped from a separate place. it sits in an aeration tank. then that water is pushed under pressure through permeable membranes where it is disinflected with bleach and uv light. it is sent back up into the building to flush toilets and urinals. >> so the water that will be entering into people's toilets
12:17 pm
are used to flush urinals, you would never know the difference. >> reporter: water from toilets is also collected and after filtering, the -- well-solids are sent to a facility across the street where a composting system turns it into a sweet smelling fertilizer for the courtyard gardening. they are experimenting with capturing energy from warm waste water. it is an entirely new way of thinking about what we have been sending down the drain. >> buildings bring water in and send it out. that is waste water. we show the waste in waste water is not really waste at all. that we can turn waste water into clean water, soil, energy, all these amazing things. >> reporter: it is happening now at 1550. but that trickle will soon become a flood as buildings include treatment and recycling systems to meet changing laws and changing attitudes. the reuse revolution has begun. in san francisco,
12:18 pm
john ramos, kpix5. >> scientists have projected the state can lose 10% of its water by the year 2040. governor newsom has called on the state to increase water recycling by 60% by that time. speaking of water, we had plenty of it this evening as we head into the next couple of hours. oh it is packing on in the south bay. this is a live look from san jose. showers widespread throughout the south bay. a fun little system moving its way through. there is some lightning associated in certain spots. livermore, hayward, we have seeing a bulk of the action. this system is moving off in the east. keep in mind, it is tracking east right now. zooming in a little closer to san jose. near seven trees and campbell. that system has been developing heavily actually near palo alto like i said. fremont, same exact trend. we are keeping a close eye on that
12:19 pm
for our friends in dublin. that is pushing into the highway just to the east of you. let's take a look at futurecast. like i said, they will continue to push off into the southeast as we head into the next couple of hours. it tapers off in certain spots in the late evening but nonetheless, closer to sacramento valley. speaking of cold fronts, it changed the whole forecast for us the rest of the week. we were sitting in the 80s off in the east inland hills. now upper 50s and low 60s . a very chilly setup. we have more rain as we head into this weekend. that is all new to a cold front pushing its way in. by saturday and sunday. daylight savings, don't forget about it. as we kick off next workweek, it is a very similar set up. more rain on the way can daytime highs well below average in the mid 50s . and our inland areas as well as the north bay. liz? >> jessica, thank you. the 49ers are staying busy
12:20 pm
making moves during their biweek. the latest move that will change how the back field works. that's next in the red and gold report.
12:21 pm
chocolate. vanilla. strawberry. but this isn't ice cream. this is big tobacco. and their candy flavors are served with a strong dose of nicotine. because big tobacco knows four out of five kids who use tobacco started with a flavored product. and once they're hooked,
12:22 pm
they can be addicted for life. it's time to put the brakes on big tobacco's candy-flavored trick and protect california kids. vote yes on proposition 31.
12:23 pm
the 49ers have a bye this week, that doesn't mean they are not busy. in this red and gold report, vern glenn tells us the niners just made another running back transaction. >> this is the volkswagen red and gold report. >> the group will not include jeff wilson jr. when they return from the bye week. wilson was traded to the miami dolphins for a fifth round draft pick tuesday. his role was reduced when christian mcaffrey was in the mix and elijah mitchell is expected to return this month. but selfishly, i will miss wilson's personality in the locker room. >> we got a little saying. nitt. now is the time. >> if i throw that on my wife, she will say nitt with the trash? >> yeah. the laundry. >> nitt, jack! >> i like to go original snickers. none of that almond stuff. >> or the peanut butter or the
12:24 pm
mix. the dark chocolate. no. traditional browned pack. snicker label in the front. with the recipe on the back. >> with the red and gold report, i'm vern glenn. >> i'm with them on the snickers, that sounds good right now. coming up, the holiday tradition celebrates
