Africa Provides a Novel Idea to Solve an Oklahoma Water Problem

A nonprofit in Oklahoma has come up with a novel idea to solve the state’s water infrastructure issues, and the idea came from an unlikely source: Africa. According to StateImpact Oklahoma, a charity in Oklahoma City known as Water4 has proposed the idea of going into smaller communities and building water treatment plants at no cost to the town. The project will be funded by citizens, who will pay for the clean water.

The idea doesn’t seem to be against any of Oklahoma’s laws, and it’s not unlike the way electric utilities are handled in the private sector. However, no towns have taken the company up on the offer as of yet.
