Families left with tainted Turlock wells will soon have easier access to clean water free from nitrates.

Approximately 103,000 residents in Turlock — as well as in Modesto, Kings, Chowchilla, Tule and Kaweah — have faced the same problem for years. Now, they will benefit from new efforts by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board.

It’s a solution 20 years in the making.
