Water pollution in the San Joaquin Valley

Water Deeply has three stories on water pollution in California’s San Joaquin Valley.

  1. Living in California’s San Joaquin Valley May Harm Your Health
    More than 1 million people in the region have been exposed to unsafe drinking water in recent years from pesticides, arsenic, nitrate and uranium. And many communities also face multiple environmental health threats.
  2. T is for Toxic: Danger Lurking in California School Drinking Fountains
    It’s too risky for tens of thousands of children in the San Joaquin Valley to drink water at their schools due to chronic contamination by chemicals, pesticides and other toxins.
  3. The California Drought Isn’t Over, It Just Went Underground
    Drought conditions continue for thousands of rural residents in the San Joaquin valley who rely on groundwater. And the race to dig deeper wells is a losing game for small communities and those on private wells.
