Our aquifers are not a free resource - as they are depleted, salt water from the bay seeps into them, and we face potential land sinkage. This is the tragedy of the commons. Conservation in this time of drought and climate change needs to be our first response. Reuse of gray water for landscaping including golf courses should be encouraged.

Don't deplete the aquifer. Find a way to use gray water.

This is nothing more than a water grab by the country club.
This project is against Menlo Park's own Urban Water Management Plan.
This project is for no other reason than to allow more water for Massive Development.
Not one drop of water is saved.
Country Club will save approx. $600,000. a year for water while raping a natural resource.
City Staff is ignoring Neighborhood and Residents opposition to this project, rather than being their advocate.
NO cost benefit analysis has been done to see what placing smaller wells in the parks and school to water ONLY the parks and schools would save the City.
This project is an abomination and should be stopped immediately!
