SAN FRANCISCO -- A proposal that could have led to the dismantling of San Francisco's water system in Yosemite National Park's Hetch Hetchy Valley was roundly rejected by the city's voters today.
With all precincts reporting, unofficial election results showed that 77 percent of San Francisco voters voted no on Proposition F, a measure put on the ballot by a group seeking to restore the valley to its natural state.
The measure would have forced the city to formulate a plan to dismantle the dam, constructed in 1923, and improve local water conservation efforts. The plan would have gone before San Francisco voters as a charter amendment in November 2016.
