County wraps up installation of in-home water systems

YAKIMA - In action this past Tuesday, Yakima County commissioners accepted as complete an agreement with Culligan, which supplied reverse osmosis equipment to Lower Valley homes with nitrate-tainted water.

The grant-funded project had up to $355,700 available to buy and install the osmosis equipment for rural water systems affected by high nitrate levels.

Because of a lower than expected response from the public, though, Public Servcies Director Vern Redifer noted Culligan was only called on to install $136,407 worth of machines in local homes.
