It was more than 20 years ago when Hillview Water Company of Oakhurst first realized the water they were delivering its residential and businesses customers exceeded state allowable levels of iron, arsenic, uranium, and manganese. That started a long, uphill struggle for the company to not only improve the water’s quality, but also its quantity.
