“I think that you should read the preliminary studies (which you can find on-line). Sources of "information" like the USA Today are actually misinforming people by repeating the "talking points" of opponents of Prop. F. For example, the USA Today articles do not even mention the basic fact that Hetch Hetchy is only one of NINE DAMS in the San Francisco water system.”

“There is a lot of misinformation being spread by the opponents of Prop. F. A YES vote on Prop. F is the obvious choice for San Franciscans. The idea behind Prop. F is a win/win for San Francisco. The idea is to study more efficient use of the Tuolumne River system. Nobody is proposing to take away San Francisco's water source which is the Tuolumne River. The 100 year old dam at Hetch Hetchy is just one of 9 dams in the system. It seems that the opponents of Prop. F do not want people to understand that fact. It seems that many people are fooled by the term "Hetch Hetchy Water" when it is really "Tuolumne River Water" which happens to include an old dam at Hetch Hetchy and several other locations along the Tuolumne River watershed.”

“San Francisco already has the water rights to the Tuolumne River, whether or not the dam at Hetch Hetchy is removed. Any lawsuit that you are referring to would be "dead in the water." Those are just idle threats. The nearly 100 year old dam at Hetch Hetchy will be removed, the only question is whether it will be sooner or later. Hopefully, it will be sooner.”

“It is the other communities that are affected that have rights and can sue. The other USAToday article says other neighborhoods get water and I doubt they will give it up without a fight.”

Sierra Club Campaigns Against Lawmaker Fighting For Their Cause

“Why doesn't the Sierra Club spend that $625,000 to support Proposition F on the San Francisco ballot this November (which proposes a study of the restoration of Hetch Hetchy Valley)? In other words, a real environmental cause in the SIERRA Nevada Mountains. Instead, the Sierra Club decided to remain "neutral" on Proposition F. What in the world are they doing?”

A San Francisco Values Debate

Commented Oct 4, 2012 at 18:11:54 in San Francisco

“Wow, you are a restoration ecologist? Have you ever been to Hetch Hetchy? Have you seen photos of the valley before the dam? If you would study the facts, you would understand that the whole lower (and most spectacular) part of Hetch Hetchy Valley was a wet meadow. That part of the valley would flood with each year's spring runoff. That makes Hetch Hetchy the best possible candidate for restoration because the meadow would regenerate in just a few years of draining the reservoir. It is really sad that you use your "credentials" as an ecologist to make such a misleading criticism of a legitimate proposal.”

“Exactly! This whole issue has been so distorted by the opponents of Proposition F. San Franciscans need to just vote YES on Proposition F to authorize the study so that we can get some real facts and answers on how to best modernize the San Francisco water and power system.”
