Research and innovations are everywhere from federal laboratories to universities and entrepreneurs, but they are not readily identified or classified as water-related. Until now, there has been no single clearinghouse for research and innovations that may connect to water—they were fragmented, siloed or uncategorized and disconnected from those who could capitalize on the solutions.
The Water Council aggregates, evaluates and connects emerging technologies that address water issues across a wide range of industries including utilities, agriculture and manufacturers.
The time to prepare is now. In the United States, the concentration of industry and employment—paired with the regional challenges in water management, quality and quantity—present an ever-increasing threat for industry. In fact, the estimated cost to business from 2011 to 2040 is projected to be $7.5 trillion in lost sales and $4.1 trillion in lost GDP.*
