Water Supply for San Francisco
Engineer M. M. O’Shaughnessy, of San Francisco, Cal., in his report on the underground water supply of San Francisco county, shows that the total amount of well water now available for use within the city and county is sufficient to furnish 8,500,000 gallons daily, and it is possible to increase this to the extent of 3,800,000 gallons more by the development of other wells not now in use. The 8,500,000 gallons include the Golden Gate Park supply and water drawn from Lobos creek. The 3,800,000 gallons daily of additional supply is expected to be gotten from Sunset and Richmond districts and from lslais and Mission creek sources. Of the 683 wells, springs and test boles examined and reported on, 508 are now being made use of.
