April 24, 2012, Parlier, CA – A public workshop will be hosted May 3 in Parlier, CA, to provide an opportunity for people to hear about the Nitrate in Groundwater study in the Tulare Lake Basin plus hear local perspectives on the study results.

Western United Dairymen president Tom Barcellos will participate in a panel discussion. The panel will reflect on the problem of groundwater nitrate, safe drinking water, promising solutions, and how this report might contribute to constructive policy discussions in defining the issues and promising directions.
