City Consideration of Basement Construction Groundwater Pumping

The City of Palo Alto’s Policy & Services Committee will consider the issue of groundwater pumping for basement construction on Tuesday, December 1st at 6:00 pm, City Hall, 250 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto.  We need all of you to attend and show your support for saving Palo Alto’s groundwater.

Invite your family, friends and neighbors to attend also.  Groundwater not only supports our canopy, our properties and our infrastructure, it is our savings account for when there is no precipitation.  El Niño or not, we should plan for droughts and possibly, even future megadroughts in Palo Alto.

If you would like to be added to the City’s email list regarding groundwater pumping. please email the Public Works Engineering Services Division at   If you want to know what else you can do to Save Palo Alto’s Groundwater, please visit our How to Get Involved page.
