With Solano County students back at school this month, many will find it easier to make healthy food choices and stay hydrated with clean, fresh water, thanks to a partnership between the county, cities and school districts, including Vallejo’s, county officials announced.
Over the past two years, the Solano County Department of Health and Social Services, Public Health Division’s Vibe Solano has collaborated with community partners to provide 95 water stations with bottle fillers at parks and schools throughout the county. Students and visitors to our local parks who bring a water bottle are now able to refill them at these stations to stay hydrated, they said.
Fifteen Vallejo City Unified School District campuses and 35 parks have already had these filling stations installed while another nine are awaiting installation, Solano County Health Services Manager Wendy Loomas said.
