Regional water supply could help north Tulare County towns

Some of the worst drinking-water problems in the county are in the north in a number of small “disadvantaged” communities like Cutler, Orosi, East Orosi, Sultana, Seville and Monson. Water with high nitrates and DBCP contamination, probably most from agricultural applications, has forced schools and communities to buy bottled water. The extent of the problem has caught the attention of the national media in the past few months. A November New York Times story recounted that at one time Tulare County identified 15 “non-viable” communities in the 1970s based on a prediction that mechanical harvesters would soon replace the farm workers who lived in places without public water and sewer services, and the best solution was for folks to move.
