Representatives from the City of Orland, Glenn County and California Department of Water Resources will share information about the water system connectivity and other drought relief resources. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Glenn Success Square Conference Center, 131 E. Walker St. in Orland.

The City of Orland was recently awarded a grant of nearly $8 million from DWR to provide emergency water connections to county residents. Glenn County has partnered with North Valley Community Foundation on a grant program that is under development.
