Viriginia: Lenowisco Planning District's combined fiber/water project

"The Lenowisco Planning District in southwest Virginia (encompassing Lee, Wise, Scott counties, and the city of Norton) is getting national attention for the innovative duct and fiber backbone it is installing as part of a water system upgrade. When a major water line connecting the communities of Big Stone Gap and Duffield was funded, Skip Skinner, president of Lenowisco, saw the opportunity to place telecom duct alongside the water line. Lenowisco has set a goal of getting high-capacity broadband to every home and business in the next 10 years, and this project fit well with that goal."

The article goes on to describe the Emtelle micro-duct technology Lenowisco is using for this project.
