Goal

RAMP is an organization that strives to improve the well-being of impoverished families in Martin County, Kentucky, located in the Appalachia region of the United States. They operate a food pantry, provide emergency assistance where needed, and run a weekend backpack program which provides school children with food. As part of their work, RAMP needed a solution to provide safe, clean drinking water to residents without the cost and unreliability of bottled water.

Challenge

Faced with an outdated and compromised water infrastructure system that is believed to contain dangerous levels of contamination, residents of Martin County are forced to live without reliable access to the most basic human need: clean drinking water. With sporadic delivery of foul-smelling, discolored water, families rely on making regular drives to local streams and small creeks to fill up jugs, or buy expensive plastic bottled water if incomes allow.

SOURCE Project

RAMP’s 10-Hydropanel SOURCE array produces up to 3,000 bottles of water each month, providing high-quality drinking water to families who come to the food pantry. This demonstrates that there are new, innovative solutions to the infrastructure problems facing communities like Martin County across America.
