Every day we take for granted that we have instant potable water at our fingertips. Maybe, we leave the water running for a shower a bit long or pour out a cup of water we couldn’t finish. We aren’t alone, many companies make small decisions that cause them to use more water. These companies pay for the water and would want to save the cost but cannot see how. Water savings and conservation matters to people and companies, how can they treat it that way?
Recently, we talked with Anthony Jones a habitual entrepreneur around water with more than 10 years of experience to learn about what he has been up to. His experience and network connected him with an early stage water startup called Waterhound Futures, whose motto is “We treat water like it matters… it does!”
Waterhound Futures adds intelligence to water and waste treatment plants with a web-based software-as-a-service tool to help eliminate contamination of freshwater caused by untreated wastewater at source, by providing real time data collection, monitoring and predictive decision tools. Decision tools eliminate traditional methods of wastewater management.
Water is scarce. Wastewater treatment plants don’t measure the amount of contaminants contained in water which could be harmful. Waterhound is addressing the lack of real time data on water conditions been sent out of wastewater plants by offering a web-enabled digital tool to enable Management, plant operators,and design engineers to optimize the entire wastewater treatment processes. This will enable wastewater plants to plan for preventive maintenance and upgrades to optimize performance of the plant.
