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.
Patrick Pulupa, executive officer of the Board, joined Sonseeahray to explain the situation and what comes next.
