Domestic well users can now access safe, free drinking water at Hanford fill station
Kings River Water Quality Coalition provides free, safe, accessible drinking water to ensure reliable water supply for domestic well users
The fill station installation signifies efforts to contribute to safe drinking water for water users within the Kings River region. The fill station draws from the City of Hanford’s municipal water system. The fill station installation, operation and maintenance, including metered water usage is paid for by the Coalition as a solution outlined in a settlement agreement preventing particular enforcement actions. The drinking water is provided in response to well testing in rural areas that found some wells exceed safe drinking water standards for nitrates.
Users can access the fill station at Hanford’s KART Transit Center any day and time. To fill up on the free and safe drinking water, users must bring an empty container no larger than 5 gallons. There is no limit to the number of containers. For more information, please visit kingsriverwqc.org/fillstation.
