Kettleman City, a tiny Latino farmworker community in the Central Valley, is impacted by multiple sources of pollution, and threatened by new proposed polluting industries. Existing pollution includes the Chemical Waste Management landfill, pesticides, drinking water contaminated with benzene and arsenic, massive diesel truck traffic on Highway 41 and Interstate 5, toxic contamination from oilfield operations, and a former PG&E site.
Greenaction is supporting community residents demand clean drinking water in Kettleman City.
