Well, that's a number!

Zone 7 probably not responding because they do not want to acknowledge potable water is in Zone 7 water system.

Zone 7 is an expensive bureaucratic overhead. They supply State Government's (90%) water to try-city and charge exorbitant overhead. The 10% water they source themselves is polluted and not fit for life. Zone 7 water is only good for flushing the toilet and watering your lawn. Try-City governments should band together and get rid of Zone 7 bureaucracy, it will reduce the cost of water to Pleasanton, Livermore and Dublin.

I have been using bottled water and more recently home RO system [20 years]since 1976. Zone 7 water is only good for bathing. I do not cook with or drink what comes out of the faucet, and neither should you..IMHO
