Yakima, WA – Lower Valley residents who are served by private wells, and all persons interested in Yakima County's Nitrate Treatment Program, will have two opportunities this week to learn more about the program, find out about financial assistance options, and to obtain application assistance.

Program representatives from Yakima County, the State Department of Health, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Yakima Health District and Culligan International will be available to share nitrate-related health information and to discuss nitrate treatment options to Lower Valley households served by private wells that have tested high for nitrate.

The public meetings follow last week's 8000-piece mailing that was sent to Lower Valley residents served by private wells.

Residents who received a packet and plan to apply are urged to bring their packet to the meeting.

Both meetings begin at 6:00 PM.
