Editor’s Note: Thanks to everyone who has submitted questions so far. Due to Labor Day weekend, San Jose Inside has decided to extend the deadline to pose questions to SCV Water District CEO Beau Goldie to 5pm on Friday.
In an effort to keep readers better informed about and involved with community issues, San Jose Inside will allow readers to become reporters and ask questions. If you’ve ever wondered why a certain question wasn’t posed, this will be your opportunity to step forward and ask. Each Friday, SJI will announce a person who has agreed to be interviewed, and we will leave it to readers to come up with the questions in the comments section. The cutoff to submit questions will be 5pm Tuesday. Due to time constraints on the people who agree to be interviewed, San Jose Inside will select 10 reader questions.
We will post questions and the public figure’s answers in a Q&A format the following Thursday. If an answer seems incomplete or unsatisfactory, SJI will do its best to follow up.
In this week’s Q&A, Santa Clara Valley Water District CEO Beau Goldie has agreed to answer your questions. The SCVWD manages a water resources system which includes supplying clean and safe water, flood protection and stewardship of streams on behalf Santa Clara County’s 1.8 million residents. The district manages 10 dams and surface water reservoirs, three water treatment plants, a water quality laboratory, nearly 400 acres of groundwater recharge ponds and more than 275 miles of streams. It also provides wholesale water to 13 local retailers who use these and other sources to deliver drinking water directly to homes and businesses.
