It’s good morning to be poisoned, but the water still tastes awful.

City leadership should be seeking out alternate water sources.

Hetch Hetchy water flows through Pleasanton, provides water to Castlewood, Sunol and points south.

If this is true and includes Pleasanton tap water (which I’m assuming it does?), then why have myself and numerous other neighbors throughout Pleasanton been having problems with yellow water? We’ve all tried contacting the city with our concern, only to have our calls and emails remain unanswered.
If this is true, why does my water smell so strongly of chlorine that it makes my entire bathroom smell when I run the sink? Why does this water make my hair fall out, if I use it without a filter installed on my shower head? Why does it make my skin itch and break out into tiny bumps?

If this is “good” water, I don’t want to know what bad water is.
