Improving Water Accessibility in Appalachian Ohio (short)

The Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, in partnership with the Governor's Office of Appalachia, the OHIO EPA, and local development districts, with funding from the Appalachian New Economy Partnership, is addressing water accessibility and quality throughout Southeastern Ohio.

By collecting data on how many residents live without access to water on their properties, the partnership can identify the resources to build long-term solutions and infrastructure.
