MSWD Asks Why SFPUC’s Weather Radar Station Closed Off The Top of Montara Mountain; EIR Less Than Significant?
November 19, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
VIDEO. From the Montara Sanitary and Water District meeting 11/5/2020.
This item was brought to the MWSD board on November 5, 2020 at the request of Director Harvey and found a great level of interest with members of the board and public. The Advanced Quantitative Precipitation Information (AQPI) system project found general support with all meeting attendees. High Definition Radar Systems will be installed that will allow for immediate and more granulated weather forecast and observation. This can help water managers and the public in planning efforts.
However, the location of the project exactly on the highest peak in the San Francisco Peninsula, the peak of Montara Mountain, and its destruction in the construction process was criticized.
