Some rural disadvantaged of the San Joaquin Valley experience extremely low water quality.

4 Venir has won a small grant to install water filtration systems in a few households to reduce their reliance in expensive bottled water that affects their income availability and contributes to pollution. The grant, awarded by the Union of Concerned Scientists, will allow us to install about 10 filtration systems to prevent such toxic chemicals as nitrate, 1,2,3-TPC, and arsenic.
