It is my understanding that the SF Buckman direct diversion will increase the city's power use by 70%. Can one imagine the power costs of pumping from Fort Sumner! This is insanity. SF city and county need to address growth not continue to go after agricultural water rights. Some day we will need those water rights to survive.

Typical Santa Fe, the city goofy. I think it fine to raise prices for all city services (and I use that term very loosely) to astronomical levels and raise the cost of living to near NYC. Then the trust babies, movie stars, and wealthy liberal politicians and failed CIA agents that retire there or come to be "different" will feel at home. Sorry about the high costs to the normal folks, but hey you can move to a more reasonable city with better government and management.

If you are just trying to bad mouth some of your favorite stereotypes and strawmen - you succeeded; but I'm sure the push for this wacky idea is coming from somewhere else and the chances of it ever happening are slim.
