NVCF is helping deliver both drinking water and nonpotable water to residents in partnership with Glenn County after receiving a grant from the state Department of Water Resources.

Residential wells are going dry in Glenn County and North Valley Community Foundation is helping provide temporary solutions for up to 200 households.

Grants from the state Department of Water Resources provide both short-term and long-term help for residents. The city of Orland received grant funding to hook up some county residents to the municipal water system as part of the long-term fix. For the short-term relief, NVCF applied on behalf of Glenn County to provide hauled water to households with dry wells.
