Drought could dry up popular I5 oasis
Kettleman City, a popular stop for travelers on Interstate 5 with its host of gas stations and fast food joints, is on the brink of going dry. If that happens, those businesses could shut down.
Lawmakers and others are trying to work out a fix but so far, things are moving slowly.
“If they don’t work it out, it’ll be a ghost town,” said Bob Lewis, who works for Mike Jackson Farms, which owns Bravo Farms, one of the major food outlets in Kettleman City. “It’s just a matter of life and death for Kettleman City. It’s as simple as that.”
