A Message from the Public Utilities Commission:

“A Call to Conserve Water”

We didn’t get enough rain or snow this winter – plain and simple. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is officially asking all customers to voluntarily reduce water use by 10%.

Conservation is easy; turn off the faucet while brushing teeth or soaping hands; shorten shower time; install water-efficient showerheads and faucet aerators; replace older toilets and clothes washers with new water-efficient models; and, fix leaks.  Please visit sfwater.org/conservation for more information. The SFPUC offers an array of conservation assistance including free water-saving devices, free Water-Wise evaluations for homes, apartment buildings and businesses and rebates for water-efficient toilets and clothes washers.

Everyone needs to do their part to help us stretch our limited Hetch Hetchy Water Supplies. Conserve today and save for tomorrow.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and live, work, or attend high school in San Francisco.

Muni Related Thefts/Robberies: Commuters who take public transportation have been targeted by cell phone thieves. In the last couple weeks there has been two incidents involving MUNI related thefts and robberies here in the Ingleside District. In one of the cases, witnesses told the officers at the scene that the suspect was watching the victim as she focused only on her smart phone, paying no attention to her surroundings. When the bus stopped, the suspect snatched the phone from her hand and ran off the bus. If you’re not paying attention to your surroundings, you’re wearing a target on your back. Smart phone owners need to be aware that thieves may be watching you and ready to snatch your devices. The following is some common advice to avoid becoming a victim: Always be aware of your surroundings. If the bus is going to stop, stop what you are doing, look up, look around and put your phone down or put it in your pocket. And when the bus is in movement again you can go back to looking at it.
