Solar Water Works, Madison, and Veolia Water Milwaukee/OptiRTC, of Milwaukee and Boston, have been selected for funding to help bring their technologies to market through The Water Council’s Pilot Program.

Solar Water Works is developing a solar-powered, catalytic oxidation process to disinfect stormwater; Veolia Water Milwaukee/OptiRTC will control and monitor stormwater discharge.

The two companies will get matching funds to develop prototypes of their technologies and set up demonstration projects, as well as a chance for small-scale manufacturing of their products.

The program involves a partnership of The Water Council, Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District and the Fund for Lake Michigan.
