We will watch some videos to get a better idea of what Hyperloop is and how it is being developed.

The status of the Bay Delta Tunnels seems to be constantly in a state of flux due to the many circumstances tugging at it. This week it is a critical situation at the Oroville Dam which just might put the Delta Tunnels at a very low priority. In recent weeks it was the possibility of little Federal assistance based on the unfriendliness of the current administration. Plus, there have been a number of unethical actions by the involved southern valley water districts. So what does all this mean? In the February 23, 2017 presentation you will learn some of the history of the California Water Infrastructure and the history behind the Water Fix and the Delta Tunnels project. We we wook at various events that have led up to where we are at now. I will go over the pros and cons, the opponents and proponents, and alternative plans.
Please join us for this informative and interesting session.
In the 1880’s, there was a “war” on whether electricity should be supplied as alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC), and the former won. So why is there now a renewed interest in DC? Come join us to learn about the present case for DC, and a groundbreaking initiative – the dc Project in Denver, Colorado. We shall view a video on the April 2016 Sustainability Series event at The Alliance Center in downtown Denver, focusing on the building's direct current (DC) microgrid conversion. We will start viewing the video at 8:15 a.m so please arrive by that time to see the full video!
Thursday Morning Meeting, Mar. 09, 2017 8:00am - 9:30am Free, No reservations required, but it would be appreciated if you register on our Meetup site.
Many people understand the importance of conserving water and converting their lawns to water efficient gardens, but often balk at the perceived complexity, cost, and time commitments of such conversion. There is a "knowledge gap" here - how to put in that great landscape after the turf is removed. This presentation will illustrate, with two actual projects, that building a water efficient garden can be easy, quick, and cost-effective. When more and more conversions are done like this, the knowledge gap might be gradually closed, and more water efficient gardens will be built.
Please join us for this very interesting presentation.
A very important meeting took place on 08/22/17 at the Almaden Expressway site of the SCVWD.
