Bay area should do its part to solve California's water problems

Published: Saturday, Jun. 15, 2013 - 10:06 am

Re "California needs more water storage to end conflicts, bolster its economy" (Viewpoints, June 14): I agree with Sen. Dianne Feinstein that we should increase our water storage capacity. Until this is accomplished and since we are all in this together, the Bay Area should allow the water it is receiving from Hetch Hetchy Reservoir be sent to Southern California.

As Silicon Valley and San Francisco are financial centers, the cost of desalination for their water source would be a drop in the bucket. This gesture of shared sacrifice will inspire the balance of the state to support joint efforts to solve our water shortage problem.
