I am hearing that you are putting our drinking water at risk, is this true?

No. We have also seen these comments printed repeatedly in the media with no supporting science or facts offered to confirm this allegation. 

Interestingly, there has been no effort by those individuals making these claims to discuss their concerns with the Groundwater Committee, nor has there been any formal request to change the regulated uses in the Groundwater Overlay Zoning. 

The Water Department and Planning Department staffs do agree that the ordinance and the mapping need to be revised to make it easier to interpret and to incorporate the latest science and technology.
