6:36 am
head to liz. it's a mess in lafayette especially for this time of the morning when you're used to cruising along. not the case today on westbound 24 from the walnut creek interchange all the way out to acalanes. the speeds are all below 20 miles per hour. earlier truck fire it is now out. one lane slow lane continues to remain blocked. once you get past acalanes everything clears out. also through the altamont pass, tracy, actually traffic is "friday light." once you hit the livermore valley, there are some slowdowns on the approach to vasco. westbound 580 and then remains slow and go all the way to the dublin interchange. drive time though is slightly down from a typical commute. its a friday. that's the latest "kcbs" drive to work. new york city is dealing with its first case of ebola! inside an ambulance, you're about to see is dr. craig spencer. he recently returned to the u.s. after treating ebola patients in west africa. he tested positive for the

6:38 am
>> the tour company said this: comments made by this former employee on her last day of employment are absolutely not a representation of how much we love and support chinatown and every other community in san francisco. well, switching gears, water is at a premium and some say that raising those premiums even higher is the best way to get through the drought. >> it's a harsh plan but as kiet do reports, it's what one stanford researcher says we must do. it's a story you'll only see on kpix 5. >> when you have low supply and high demand of something, well, this just might be a good time to consider raising the price of water. >> there's nothing though like a drought to point out the obvious. >> reporter: it's a no-brainer says stanford researcher buzz thompson who released a paper entitled, the path to innovation. he says water utilities who charge the same rate no matter how much water is used needs to stop. >> the best way of encouraging people to conserve is to charge those people who are using the
6:39 am
most water higher prices for those last units. >> reporter: thompson is talking about a tiered pricing system where the more you use it more it costs. we're not talking about raising the price on normal household use. if you use a lot of water, like filling up a swimming pool, that might push you into a higher tier which means your water bill would go way up. making you think twice about installing a pool or even watering the grass. what's more, researchers say higher prices would spur innovation in technologies like grass even a new type of member break that makes desalinization -- membrane that makes desalinization more affordable. >> without adequate prices of water you see a damping of technological investment. >> reporter: governor brown says there's no magic bullet for the drought and water pricing is only part of the solution. you have a history of being the bad guy. do you want to be the bad guy
6:40 am
in this circumstance with water prize? >> there is a big role for the state and localities. so these decisions on how to price water will be made in a variety of locations but we'll convene all the stake holders to get it right. >> reporter: and we asked the santa clara valley water district to weigh in. they say that peer price -- tier pricing works. they have seen it time and again. they can ration or impose a drought reduction fee but for quick results for conservation, you have to hit them in the wallet. back to you. >> you know, the bottom line, kiet, and what always comes out during times of crisis is the fact that agriculture uses 80% of the water in this state. righ what's going to happen with them? >> reporter: yeah. when it comes to that, the problem is more complicated. there's a lot of talk of moving towards water markets, that is when a farmer doesn't need water in a particular season he can sell it to somebody else who can make more efficient and effective use of the millions
6:41 am
of millions of gallons of water that the farmers use of year. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. the a's are holding out hope for a deal to move to the south bay. the team is working with major league baseball and in the courts to win permission to play in san jose. the "mercury news" reports san jose officials are giving the a's up to 7 more years for the negotiations. the a's have a new 10-year lease at the oakland coliseum that allows them to leave early for san jose. time now, 6:41. don't be surprised if your recycling starts piling up. the strike that could affect service in parts of the bay area. >> apparently, most people ignore those nutrition facts on the back of every food label but a new plan could have you thinking twice about what you eat. next.
