Goal

To develop a new, mobile model for disseminating community information by testing a service that notifies residents of a city in India when water is available.

To develop a new way of disseminating critical community information, NextDrop will launch a service, in conjunction with local utilities, that notifies residents of Hubli, Karnataka, India when water is available. NextDrop will work with water utility employees who operate the valves that control the infrequent flow of water. NextDrop will notify neighborhood residents via text when the water is turned on. This system will be replicable in any community as a way to distribute all types of community information.
