Agua4All, a pilot project to bring clean drinking water to California, launched Wednesday in Thermal, Calif. The project will fund the installation of water bottle refilling stations, or “taps,” in schools and other accessible locations in rural communities where access to clean water is scarce. The eastern Coachella Valley is the first location to pilot the tap program; a similar program is being replicated in South Kern County. “We realize that it shouldn’t be a privilege to open your tap and get water that you can drink; it should be your right.” Read more on Coachella Unincorporated.
