“The Water Council was instrumental in connecting us with key stakeholders in our exploration of the European market. They made introductions to local programs for funding with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and overseas partners like The Water Alliance in the Netherlands and British Water in the United Kingdom. Through these engagements and with the support of The Water Council, we’ve been able to focus our European efforts, ultimately leading to opportunities for piloting in the United Kingdom and partnering with potential distribution and manufacturing partners.”
