There are some noteworthy things happening in the city of Coachella.
On Tuesday, Coachella obtained a $500,000 state grant to help develop a stannous chloride pilot program for the city's drinking water. This comes as the State Water Resources Control Board is expected to issue a new chromium-6 drinking water standard later this year.
Chromium-6 is a naturally occurring chemical that when consumed is linked to cancer, according to the EPA.
Coachella's pilot study will help demonstrate the efficacy of stannous chloride as the city’s most cost-effective option in complying with the forthcoming chromium-6 standard.
On Wednesday, the city council will decide whether to install automatic license plate reader technology at the city's major intersections.
The city could install anywhere between 30 to 70 cameras throughout the city.
News Channel 3's Peter Daut spoke with Coachella Mayor Steven Hernandez about the happenings in the city.
