6:27 pm
>> thirsty for water because of deals made 30 years ago. i'm senior investigative reporter steven stock. we investigate that when it comes to water allocations in some communities here, not all is equal.
6:28 pm
6:29 pm
today's olympic coverage on nbc bay area is brought to you locally in part by academy of art university in san francisco. right now at 6:30, a story about water, politics and race, and it's raising some eyebrows. are the richer cities along the peninsula getting more water than everyone else? >> this is now reaching a crisis
6:30 pm
point in each palo alto. senior investigative reporter stephen stock joins us to explain. >> janelle, raj, this report by the pacific institute and the environmental justice coalition for water backs up what we discovered in our investigation. that when it comes to water, its distribution, who gets it here in this area, all is not equal in the bay area. residents in east palo alto face an uphill battle to enjoy the same prosperity lifting other residents living along the rest of the peninsula. while neighboring communities have low unemployment and rising wages, east palo alto, a community of majority/minority residents has an average household income 2 1/2 times lower than its next door neighbor, palo alto, and still has nearly 12% unemployment and almost 17% of its residents live below the poverty line. >> more lower-income people are here. more people of color are here.
6:31 pm
>> reporter: steven is a venture capitalist from marin county looking to invest in new businesses and economic opportunities, especially in low-income communities of color. communities just like east palo alto where he already rents an office and is funding several business ventures. >> we are in the middle of what is arguably the largest well creation event in human history and this community, east palo alto, has been on the margins. >> reporter: because of deals made 30 years ago, east palo alto now finds itself in a tough spot with not enough water to allow for growth and development. >> we're thirsty. we need water now. r >> reporter: the city currently uses 100% of its water allocation. for the historically marginalized city, that means officials have frozen development projects already red doi bui ready to build and on the table. >> if we don't have water, we can't be approving projects.
6:32 pm
>> reporter: carlos martinez is city manager in east palo alto. right now you're turning away projects. >> we are, yes. >> reporter: is that frustrating where a manager's point of view? >> it is frustrating for us because we do need the growth. we need to create more jobs for our residents. more revenue for our city. >> there absolutely is a problem. i mean, it's 30 years in the making. >> reporter: state senator hill who represents the area acknowledges this issue is a critical one for east palo alto right now. >> they're up against the wall, and they need water and quickly. >> reporter: east palo alto's water problems can be traced back to an agreement signed back in the 1980s between sfpuc and 26 different peninsula cities. the deal provides 184 million gallons of hetch hetchy water a day to the entire group of cities. >> it was left to the wholesale customers to work among themselves to divvy that up. >> reporter: steven richie is assistant general manager of water enterprise at the san francisco public utilities commission. overseeing operations and planning for the regional distribution of water from hetch
6:33 pm
hetchy reservoir. >> the customers worked it out among themselves. san francisco really didn't participate in that. >> reporter: the bottom line, the agreement left east palo alto with 7 1/2 times less water than palo alto. nearly six times less than mountain view. and half as much water as santa clara or even stanford university. now officials in both palo alto an mountain view say their leadership is exploring ways to give some of their city's water allocations to east palo alto. >> we are going to be talking about what kind of quantities we might be willing to give and what we might want in return for that. >> so why can't palo alto give east palo alto some of that permanent allocation? why can't you share -- >> i wouldn't say that we can't, so, i mean, i think we're going to work through a process this fall -- summer and fall. >> reporter: real solutions are not happening fast enough for critics who see subtle racism at play here. >> this is an issue that we're all guilty of. we don't look at eastside communities as places of wealth
6:34 pm
creation. as places of health and wellness. >> there has been some suggestion by some especially in east palo alto, was there racism involved, even subtle racism? >> may be subtle racism 30 years ago when the numbers were determined and how it was allocated in the future but i think the county looks at the community, looked at it as a poor community, a poor mustncomy of color. they didn't see the potential there. >> now, east palo alto city officials just voted to allow some development within the last two weeks, anticipating that the city will get some relief. but the rest of all development there has been frozen by city ordinance. they just don't have the water. the ceo of the group representing all these cities says east palo alto's water shortage is, quote, unacceptable and solvable. despite all these positive discussions around this issue, experts tell me that a solution to this water inequity may not
6:35 pm
become reality until 2018. raj, janelle? >> all right, steve. a lot of people on the peninsula talking about this. if you have a tip for stephen stock or anyone else in our investigative unit, call 888-996-tips or send us an e-mail directly to theunit@nbcbayarea.com. back to rio. blame it on a chemical imbalance. olympic organizers say a sudden decrease in alkalinity levels have caused pools in rio to turn green. photos of the green pools went wild on social media. the water in the diving pool and synchronized swimming pool is being treated and should be back to blue soon. until then, olympic spokesperson is assuring athletes that the water poses no health risk. okay. a few days ago, cupping was the big story in rio. now it's tape. you see that tape on a lot of the athletes. >> it's tape from a bay area startup. business and tech reporter scott budman is here. this tape has been worn by a lot of medal winners.
6:36 pm
>> it's true. you see the tape on arms, legs, wrists of olympic athletes, from a very diverse field of sports. kerri walsh jennings, she's been wearing the tape since beijing. and how about tom daley, he's got it on his wrist. he just took home a bronze medal in diving. this, by the way, is what all this tape is about. olympic athletes from all over the world wear it. and the company that makes it is once again hearing this question. >> day say what's that crazy tape on the at loohletes? >> reporter: it's rock tape. athletes wear if during the games. employees wear it during work. it's for anyone looking for an advantage. >> the tape microscopically lifts skin away from the tissue, an injured or fatigued area, the faster it recovers. >> reporter: athletes personalize the tape.
6:37 pm
she's a giants fan. so can you. >> it definitely helps a boomer who is a weekend warrior recover and perform better because as we age, we can't recover as quickly as when we were in our 20s, right? >> reporter: the tape is catching on. a sticky way to help athletes bring home the gold. >> that makes my heart grow big. yeah, we like that very much. >> this kind of tape actually has a history. it was originally used on horses three decades ago to ease pain and relax their muscles. now, of course, on humans and soon for pets. like your dog. raj? >> the big question, can you get us personalized nbc bay area tape? >> yes, i'll work on that. >> our own jessica aguirre is in rio at this hour tracking our local athletes. she'll join us after our primetime olympics coverage during our midnight newscast. still to come, good will or exploitation? nbc bay area responds to complaints about a charity that puts pictures of missing children on donation jars.
