The tiny community of Monson in Tulare County received some good news this week. The State Water Resources Control board awarded $1.2 million to help solve the area’s long term water problems. The area's dealt with high levels of nitrates for decades and the drought dried up lots of wells that people depend on for drinking water.
Tulare County Supervisor Steve Worthley represents the area. He says funding due to the drought is answering the communities longtime water problems.
