I would like to see the city look for better water sources than well water. Well water is the primary reason we have such hard water in Pleasanton. The city and/or Zone 7 should be looking into tying into a better water source such as SFPUC or EBMUD.

Hetch Hetchy water source is available to Pleasanton.
The city needs to negotiate a deal for it.
Hetch Hetchy serves Castlewood, Sunol and points south..
