The more I looked at the map I noticed that a lot of the areas that have violations are traditionally corn and cotton growing areas. CF- According to your article your friend in Fresno doesn't have much need to worry. It seems Fresno has pretty good water quality. So does Fowler, Selma, Kingsburg, Parlier and most of the areas surrounding Fresno that are VERY Ag heavy. If you look at the east side and foothills you will notice worse water quality. Ag is not causing that. Quite a few of the areas you are blaming Ag for are high levels of Arsenic which is not a result of Ag. There are nitrate problems, some of which is caused by Ag and some is not. This has been a problem for decades and is not just an recent issue. I know it doesn't fit your narrative but this has been occurring long before the almond boom. My dad didn't really care about the water from his well and for dang sure his dad and uncles didn't. Awareness plays a role and now just a few miles from where I grew up we have an RO and filter system for our tap water and am surrounded by the ground we farm. I think we are seeing more regulation and attention being paid to well water quality and this bill is the result of that. If somebody that knows the area looked at the map they would know your narrative doesn't work.
