This program helps extend access to clean, reliable water and waste disposal systems for households and businesses in remote and extremely isolated parts of the United States. Many Alaskan villages can only be accessed by boat or plane, making them virtually inaccessible during the long winters. Weather and distance also make construction costs abnormally high and in some cases permafrost requires the construction of utility tunnels or insulated heated pipe above ground in order to provide basic services.
