LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - To help fight PFAS contamination in the drinking water, Hy-Vee said it was donating 25,000 gallons of bottled water to residents in the Town of Campbell.
They'll be joined by Kwik Trip and CVS in distributing water to Campbell residents Thursday afternoon according to the township in a statement released late Wednesday afternoon.
Hy-Vee said in a release that it is the equivalent of about five semi-truckloads of water. It is a supply for approximately 4,000 people for several days.
The Town of Campbell said there are two locations where people can receive water. The distribution goes from 3-6 p.m. in both locations.
Residents can pick up water at the Days Inn east side parking lot at 101 Sky Harbor Drive. Hy-Vee employees are assisting in the distribution.
French Island residents can pick up two 24-packs of bottled water per person in their family while supplies last, the release said.
The company is in the process of constructing a grocery store in the former Sears store in Valley View Mall.
The second location is Olivet Lutheran Church at 2100 Bainbridge Street.
In both locations, the distributions are touchless. People are asked to observe COVID-19 protocols including masks. Volunteers will load the water in to vehicles with as much limited contact as possible.
The attached maps show how to enter and exit each location.
