Water Internet Needs
The purpose of Project WIN is to create a process that better equips our county to collect and maintain information about the waterline and internet needs across our community. In the future, Project WIN can be expanded to include information about other infrastructure needs in our area.
The information collected through Project WIN will enable us to better communicate our waterline and internet needs to providers, as well as provide vital information needed to apply for grants.
The ultimate goal of Project WIN is to help us win more grants so that our citizens may have better access to water and internet creating as many win-WIN situations as we can.
Here’s what we do and do not know about access to broadband and waterlines in our county.
What we know: Our county leadership has a good idea of areas that still lack access to broadband.
Where we’re lagging: What we do not have is a good way of sharing with broadband providers that we know for certain people in these areas would like internet and would sign up for their services should they be available.
What we know: Our county leadership has a good idea of areas that lack access to potable water, and we may be able to get a list of people who do not have access from utility districts.
Where we’re lagging: What we do not have is access to the list of people in a central location and confirmation that the individuals on the list would want access to waterlines should it be available.
