Vidak Expresses Gratitude for Water Hook-Ups in East Porterville

Friday, August 19, 2016

Sacramento – Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) issued the following statement today as the first East Porterville homes were connected to a water system since wells went dry in the summer of 2014:

The Valley’s epic drought has been especially devastating to the folks in East Porterville. Heartfelt-thanks to all the volunteers who helped folks get water and gratitude for the leaders and agencies that worked together to make today’s hook ups possible.

Vidak was unable to attend today’s Department of Water Resources press conference because the Senate was in session at the State Capitol voting on legislation.
