Where/how can we learn more about he upgrades to Paseo Real Wastewater Treatment Plant?
Bill Schneider
35:26
Hello Joni et al. Yes, the City just replaced the entire aeration basins and is now embarking on replacing the headworks this FY. We are pursuing a new Master Plan this FY for PRWRF and will be replacing all filtration and disinfection Major upgrades in the works within the next 3 years. Thank you for the inquiry.

How will the Return Flow Credits benefit us when the Rio Grande no longer has enough flow?
kalindi
45:25
Is it true that developers are buying rural water rights to expand city housing? The slide said developers need to "bring" their own water rights, what does that mean? Also, if the city is buying water rights, what kind of impact will that have on agriculture?
Garrett Peck
49:02
The federal government cut Arizona farmers off last year from Lake Mead water. What if the government does the same for New Mexico for Lake Powell? How will that impact our SJC water supply?
Bill Schneider
57:50
Garret Peck: Excellent point. In response, more reason why the SJC Return Project is critical for ensuring a safe and reliable and resilient water supply source by fully maximizing its SJC source.
Bobbe Besold
59:06
Is there community input for conservation? The city is not helpful in creating things like curbs cuts, a very simple way to use stormwater.
Bobbe Besold
01:00:21
How will the Return Flow Credit impact the lower Santa Fe River?
Bobbe Besold
01:08:31
Are the toilet retrofits still happening now?
Joni Arends, CCNS
01:10:33
How many water rights does the Buckman Wellfield have currently against the 2500 AFY? I’ve seen public notices to transfer 75 AFY from Socorro County to the BDD, but not to the Buckman Wellfield.
Bobbe Besold
01:10:46
Are gray water systems being installed in new construction?
Leonard Pascual
01:12:02
I am starting gray water systems with a first unit going in the county hopefully in the next six months.
kalindi
01:12:41
Are these all surface water rights being purchased by developers?
Bobbe Besold
01:14:11
Whats the percentage of affordable housing that’s been built?
Garrett Peck
01:14:53
I can’t speak for women’s restrooms at restaurants, but many men’s rooms have low-flow urinals that still use a lot of water. Has the city considered a program to encourage local restaurants to install no-flow urinals? That would save a lot more water. Same thing for Ski Santa Fe.
Julie
01:16:23
How does fighting wildfires factor into projections? Do the water drops take up a significant amount of water?
aarin richard
01:16:25
What about practicing some degree of conservation on development itself rather than allowing unbridled building and hoping we don’t run into problems
kalindi
01:21:45
So, outlawing lawns?
Bobbe Besold
01:23:48
Replacing lens with vegetables.
Bobbe Besold
01:23:59
oops lawns
kalindi
01:25:05
There are still plenty of landscape companies who are ripping out zero scaping and planting lawns for people that are moving here from wet climates. People who can afford water fines have no problem paying them for their lawns
Christina Noftsker
01:25:19
Thanks for a good presentation.
William Mee
01:25:25
I have a friend who retired as a City Building Inspector and in 2020 he inspected 24 indoor swimming pools granted for health exceptions. He felt most were bogus claims. What’s the enforcement on that?
Joni Arends, CCNS
01:25:39
Thanks Jesse and Bill for answering my questions.
Lena
01:25:58
Turn broken recycling bins into water catchment containers by putting a spigot at the bottom and mesh to replace the lids. Then give them away for free!
