Infrastructure Committee

Overview

Certain communities already have infrastructure deficits (decayed collection/distribution lines, aging treatment plants, state mandated improvements, etc.). Most of the communities within the study fall within the Central Coastal Plains Capacity Use Area and are mandated to reduce underground water withdrawals from the Cretaceous aquifers. These factors along with the projected population increases will further stress these situations.

This committee will address projected needs for electricity; the availability of cellular phone service; the availability of highspeed broadband internet; capacities of landfills; the need for additional solid waste transfer facilities and recycling facilities; and the ability to handle increased storm water runoff.

Committee Tasks

·        Assess current and projected needs versus current and projected planned capacities for potable water of the various water providers (private, co-op, and public).

·        Assess age and condition of current water treatment plants and distribution lines and any plans to improve or replace. Include water pressure in this analysis.

·        Assess current and projected needs versus current and projected planned capacities for sewage treatment of the various sewage treatment providers (private, co-op, and public).

·        Assess age and condition of current sewage treatment plants and collection lines and any plans to improve or replace.

·        Determine the projected need for land to apply treated effluent for those systems that still pipe the treated effluent into public trust waters.

·        Assess current and projected needs versus current and projected planned capacities for electric of the various electric providers (private, co-op, and public).

·        Map areas where cellular phone service is unavailable and make recommendations regarding ways to correct those deficiencies.

·        Map areas where high-speed broadband service is unavailable and make recommendations regarding ways to correct those deficiencies.

·        Assess current and projected needs versus current and projected planned capacities for landfills.

·        Assess need for additional solid waste transfer facilities based on projected growth.

·        Assess ability of solid waste system to handle additional construction debris that would result from building related to population growth.

·        Assess level of recycling with concerned communities and implications for increasing their recycling.

·        Assess ability to handle increased storm water runoff that would result from increased housing units.

·        Assess age, type and condition of current storm water conveyances and any plans to improve or replace them.

·        Identify opportunities for the military facilities to coordinate/collaborate/share resources related to infrastructure, utilities, communications and pubic works.

·        Identify public/private venture opportunities.
