Well for SHG&CC

I am against this idea. I am concerned that the well will eventually
kill the trees in the area and cause subsidence. The risk to the trees
is not theoretical. Just look around and see the dying redwood tops due
to the pumping of groundwater to build basements. This risk should only
be introduced in a 20-year drought to provide drinking water to
residents. Not to a golf course.

I feel that golf courses in California should only be watered with water
collected on their own grounds, or with reclaimed water.

I strongly support building reclaimed water infrastructure. Buildings
should use filtered gray water to flush toilets and water landscaping. I
work in a new building at NASA Ames where this has been done. The city
and utilities should provide requirements or incentives for developers
to do this.

SHG&CC should be encouraged to use their own Gray water to water their
golf course.
