The always-fascinating BLDGBLOG is carrying information about the total redesign and reimagination of the San Francisco peninsula in the year 2108 A.D., having been overlain, if not completely replaced by, a kind of prosthetic hydrological landscape – complete with underground rivers of algae which will be cultivated as a source of hydrogen for fuel.
HYDRO-NET also serves to simultaneously collect, distribute and store water and power tapped from vast existing underground geothermal fields and aquifiers stretching from Golden Gate Park to SFO. New porous pavement replaces today’s streets, allowing rain runoff now sent in to storm sewers to recharge the aquifiers. HYDRO-NET also links to an array of fog harvesters, further diversifying San Francisco’s sources of water.
