A small south valley town finally have safe drinking water. The water in Seville has had problems for years. At times, it was down to a trickle, coming out of the faucets and it had high levels of nitrates. A crew recently drilled a 300 foot well and flushed the system out. On Friday, the Community Water Center helped hand out notices to people, letting them know the water is safe. In the future, Tulare County plans to replace the 100 year old water system with new infrastructure and link Seville to another small town's system nearby.
