the head of the surest day association, the hotel is in the early days of the pandemic as part of emergency covert shelter provided to the homeless. however, today was the deadline for the city to confer the motel to affordable housing, and they wanted to raise the rent of $627 per month. that's unaffordable to many of the seniors on fixed incomes. so last friday, the seniors took the protest to the san jose housing department, but the city said it would not budge until they could locate funding to cover the rent reduction. in late last night, the california department of housing and community development intervened, saying charging a flat fee for rent was out of compliance, and that going forward, all of the surest day tenants would pay no more than 30% of their income. >> everybody stays, all the rent drops to 30%, we completely win. >> reporter: homeless advocates broke the news to the seniors last night. >> the state has proven that we
5:58 pm
were right, and we are vindicated and how we felt about that. i think that there is a lot of bridge building that the housing department needs to do with all of these tenants. they need to apologize to them and make amends, and the need to do the same with all of the advocates that fought so hard on this. >> reporter: the ordeal left the tenants stressed, many of them couldn't sleep or eat because of the threat of being forced out of their home and community of the past year and a half. >> elated, relief. a lot of the stress is gone. a lot of the heavy burden that people have been dealing with, it really was a sense of relief. >> reporter: the housing department released a statement, saying we are reviewing tenant applications for surest day to ensure nobody will be paying more than 30% of their income for rent. kiet do, kpix 5. we investigate why thousands of gallons of freshwater is literally going down the drain in the midst of our historic drought.

6:00 pm
we confirmed today that this is actually coming from a shallow aquifer, and the water district says there is nothing they can do to stop it from flowing out to the bay. on north 10th street near the 101 over crossing, and just below the surface of the storm drain, a pipeline of apparently good clearwater empties out. where it mixes with street debris and flows in an unending stream down the drain. >> i can hear it before i got to it. >> reporter: hasan is a plumber know something about leaking water, so when he heard it while riding his bike recently, he investigated and was upset to find what he calls wasted water. decals painted on the side of the storm drain say it flows to the bay. >> we are in the middle of a drought, all this water being wasted is what caught my attention, why, why is all this water not being put to good use.
