Drought Resource Fair Offers Help to East Porterville Residents

The town of East Porterville in Tulare County has been one of the communities hardest hit by the drought. Last week, various state, local and community agencies came together at a drought resource fair to offer assistance to residents affected by the drought and dry wells.

Among those at the fair were the California Department of Water Resources and the State Water Resources Control Board who provided information about plans in the works to help the community. The fair was also attended by programs such as the Household Bottled Water Distribution Program, the Household Potable Water Tank Program, the Toilet Replacement Program and more. The drought resource fair was organized by the Tulare County Community Services Employment Training agency.

State agencies, including Cal OES, continue to work with local government and nonprofit organizations on solutions to drought-related issues in East Porterville.
