Hamblin is an unincorporated community in Kings County, California. It is located 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Hanford, at an elevation of 249 feet (76 m). The 38 homes in Hamblin were formerly supplied with domestic water from a well operated by the Hamblin Mutual Water Company. The well went dry on September 23, 2014. An emergency connection was made to the nearby City of Hanford water line and a boil water order was issued by the Kings County Department of Public Health. Bottled water was also made available to the residents. A permanent connection to the Hanford city water system was planned.
