Danville council to receive drought update

EBMUD director to give presentation on local water supply

Danville residents will have an opportunity to learn more about the local impacts of California's drought conditions during the town council meeting Tuesday night (March 4).

John A. Coleman, who represents Danville on the East Bay Municipal Utility District Board of Directors, is scheduled to present council members with an update on the agency's current water supply.

EBMUD, the water provider for Danville and other Bay Area communities, has asked all of its customers to voluntarily reduce their water use by 10% to help preserve the local water supply amid unseasonably dry weather conditions and low reservoir levels.

Coleman's presentation is listed among several open-session items for the regular council meeting, set to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Town Meeting Hall.

In other business, the council will present a proclamation declaring this as Prescription Drug Abuse Awareness Month. Patty Hoyt, of the Discovery Counseling Center, will accept the proclamation.

Council members will receive reports on recent planning commission and transportation activities. They will also announce the start of recruitment for representatives to serve on the Parks and Leisure Services Commission, Arts Commission and County Connection Advisory Committee.

Maybe the Town Council and the Town Planning Department should wake up and stop approving all the new development in Danville. Wake up you brain dead fools...the more housing you approve the more water is needed. Stop thinking about tax money coming into the town coffers. Think with your brains and not your bank account.

I hope Mr. Coleman's words tonight comes on strong, but I really doubt it.

Oh yes, ask the good people to cut back on water usage by 10%...WOW big deal.

The next thing the good folks of Danville will hear is that the 10% was not enough. Now we demand an additional 20% or you will be fined. Oh by the way the 20% will be based on what you are currently using.

Folks they have people in their office think tank that's all they do is think of ways to increase the rate-payers monthly bills and blame it on mother nature. They get me sick.. If you think I am making all this up...just wait a few months and you will see the other shoe drop.

Thanks for listening or I hope you are listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo.

I'm having a hard time following the denunciations. What are we mad about, high density growth downtown that uses less water per-capita, or lower density development that uses more, or any housing development at all?

Call me naive, but if there's more people, they have to live somewhere, right? If it's all EBMUD territory, what are we complaining about?
