Valley Edition - July 17, 2018 - Recycled Water, Emergency Housing, Flea Markets, Oil in Arvin

Jul 17, 2018

This week on Valley Edition, we learn why two valley cities are looking to stretch their water supplies from toilet to tap, in a bid to become more sustainable. We also dig into controversial plans to regulate oil wells in the Kern County city of Arvin, and learn why shoppers and vendors at area flea markets say business is down. Later in the show, we find out why a program providing emergency housing for at-risk families in Fresno is expanding, and what changes at UCSF-Fresno mean for the valley’s doctor shortage. We close the program with an ode to the spicy yet delicious Fresno chile pepper and a preview of The Big Sing California.
