San Diego’s water in the local news

Posted by George J Janczyn on March 13, 2010

City’s Water Leader Is Out / Voice of San Diego : “Jim Barrett, San Diego’s public utilities director, has resigned to take a job with the Coachella Valley Water District.”

Coastal panel sewage ruling hailed as ‘victory’ / San Diego Union-Tribune : “San Diego officials yesterday persuaded the California Coastal Commission to alter the permit language so it’s clear the city won’t be compelled to act on recommendations that come from an ongoing study of wastewater recycling.”

City’s storm water program proposal is shallow / San Diego News Network : “The city has a Flood Management Plan that discusses a wide range of measures to prevent flooding and contains an analysis of high priority needs. Contrary to that plan, the Master Storm Water System Maintenance Program (MSWSMP) assumes that clearing creeks and channels is the solution to all our flooding problems.”

Achieving water security by becoming water self-sufficient / San Diego News Network : “Many experts are projecting gloomy scenarios of decreasing water supplies and increasing costs, yet the San Diego/Tijuana Region can easily become renewable water self-sufficient and even develop into a net water exporter.”
