You are invited to attend this information session and public debate about San Francisco's Proposition F: "Water Sustainability and Environmental Restoration Act." If passed, this proposition would:

2) Allocate $8 million to pay for the plan and create a five-member task force to develop it;

3) Require the task force to complete the plan by November 1, 2015, and require the Board of Supervisors to consider placing on the ballot a Charter Amendment to approve the plan.*

San Francisco is located on SF Bay at the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers. This watershed contains the rivers of the Sierra Nevada, including the Tuolumne, the source of San Francisco's water.

The debate is an opportunity to ask some questions and learn about San Francisco's controversial proposition! Join us at the SF Main Library and discuss the future of water in San Francisco.
