BWRMA provides general announcements and/or notifications of specific interest to our community:
Jefferson PUD and NoaNet
Jefferson PUD is a member of Northwest Open Access Network or NoaNet, a non-profit corporation consisting of a consortium of public utility districts that sell wholesale telecommunications services. In the summer of 2013, a new broadband network was completed in East Jefferson County with America Recovery Act grant funding with the intention of providing faster, more affordable broadband technology to community anchor institutions such as government, education, medical and public safety services. The network is owned by the PUD, but operated by NoaNet.
While the grant was intended to serve community-based services, other businesses and organizations will be able to connect and receive service through internet service providers (ISP) utilizing the new network. Neither NoaNet, nor the PUD however can provide service to an end user. Contact an ISP to ask them what enhanced services they can provide you.
Hello neighbors, There will be brush cutting, gravel and paved road maintenance being performed during the summer and early fall when weather conditions are ideal..
