Two new water filling stations have been installed in Vallejo and will be unveiled next week to promote better health, Solano County Public Health spokeswoman Robin Cox said.
The stations were funded through Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PICH (Partnerships to Improve Community Health) with installations paid for by different means, she said.
St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School, where one of the new stations was installed, passed a Healthy Beverage Standard for students where more healthy beverage options like water, unsweetened sparkling water, unsweetened tea and unflavored/plain milk will be offered, Cox said.
Solano County Supervisor Erin Hannigan aided the efforts. A ribbon cutting is planned for Monday.
