INDIANAPOLIS, March 21, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Water technologies (OTC Pink:GWTR) is participating in a national call to action on sustainable water strategies being launched this week at the first White House Water Summit on Tuesday, March 22.
Water leaders from across the United States will head to the nation’s capital for the groundbreaking summit and related activities being held on World Water Day. The event will be live-streamed by the White House and highlight the need for water sustainability with long-term strategies and funding.
“We must move from a crisis-driven approach that responds to emergencies and begin investing in smart water solutions that use technologies to better manage our nation’s most precious resource,” said Erik Hromadka, CEO of Global Water Technologies. “Innovative financing and infrastructure resiliency are needed to protect our nation’s drinking water and ensure the public health and safety of all our citizens.”
Global Water Technologies has been working on such smart water solutions that include the use of sensors and software to reduce water loss and a combination of new physical and data tools that improve efficiency for utilities and provide better service for water customers.
Driving water innovation has been a focus for an emerging network of national water clusters that launched in 2011 in the Great Lakes region as a joint effort of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Small Business Administration (SBA). The effort has focused on collaboration among innovative companies, university partnerships and government-supported research.
Last month, Global Water Technologies hosted international delegations from Canada and China for a demonstration of water solutions in the new 16 Tech innovation community in Indianapolis. The event included a review of smart meter technology, a new UVC-LED system for disinfection and a unique process for cleaning and relining drinking water pipelines so that contaminants like lead cannot leach into the water supply.
The 16 Tech initiative kicked off this year to create a world-class research community in an area just north of the Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus where Global Water Technologies has been working to develop a living lab for water innovation.
Hromadka will be discussing these efforts and opportunities for investments in new water solutions at the Water 2.0 conference in Washington DC that is being held by the Water Innovations Alliance Foundation in conjunction with the White House water summit.
