Could your lawn and garden use a little help to stay green?  The City of Turlock’s recycled water fill station provides free recycled water to local residents to water lawns, gardens and landscaped areas. Turlock’s recycled water is also available at a nominal fee for commercial uses such as soil compaction, dust control, cement mixing and landscape irrigation.
