The AquaSentinel Water Security and Surveillance Sensor detects toxins and pollutants in real-time and online. It monitors and measures the health of algae that occur naturally in all surface waters. As a member of Cisco’s Entrepeneurs in Residence Program, Securewaters was given the opportunity … Continued
The Water, Energy and Technology (WET) Center, home to the Claude Laval Water and Energy Technology Incubator and the testing facilities of the International Center for Water Technology (ICWT), is providing an entryway for entrepreneurs, innovators and established and start-up businesses to accelerate commercialization, product and business launch and/or the development of practical application of new technologies.
Four in five (78 percent) urbanites in large cities, some 1.21 billion people, primarily depend on surface water sources. The remainder depend on groundwater (20 percent) or, rarely, desalination (2 percent). The urban water infrastructure of large cities cumulatively supplies 668 billion liters daily. Of this, 504 billion liters daily comes from surface sources, and that water is conveyed over a total distance of 27,000 km.
“We have learned that new ideas emerge when we bring together experts with different experiences and perspectives,” said Lynn Broaddus, director of the environment program at The Johnson Foundation. “Getting out ahead of our water security challenges and achieving long-term sustainability of the nation’s water resources in the face of climate change, energy constraints, diminishing groundwater supplies, financial challenges, and other resource constraints is going to take a comprehensive and cross-sector approach to the issue.”
TiEcon 2014 is one of the largest & longest ongoing conference focused around entrepreneurship and tech innovation. Ranked alongside Demo, TED and World Economic Forum among top 10 conferences worldwide for ideas and entrepreneurship by Worth magazine, TiEcon last year attracted … Continued
SecureWaters, Inc. today announced it will join Cisco Entrepreneurs in Residence (Cisco EIR), a technology innovation program of Cisco Systems, Inc. supporting early-stage startups. Cisco EIR extends SecureWaters the opportunity to work with Cisco and its global partner ecosystem to build a next generation water quality and security solution for Smart Cities through the power of the Internet of Everything (IoE).
The city of Chicago will use these EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Shoreline Cities grants for green infrastructure projects to prevent stormwater from carrying contamination into Lake Michigan,” Hedman said. “Green infrastructure also helps to prevent flooding, which is occurring more often as a result of the increasingly frequent extreme precipitation events that have hit the Midwest in recent years – a pattern that may intensify as the result of climate change.
Opflow Magazine, the popular monthly (online daily) from the American Water Works Association (AWWA) spends the complete mid section of the Mach 2014 issue on SecureWaters’ AquaSentinel Water Security Sensor. It’s a caste study, co-authored by Shawn Genung, CTO SecureWaters, … Continued
In an historic action that will protect people’s health and the environment, and benefit riverfront communities, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today proposed a plan to remove 4.3 million cubic yards of highly contaminated sediment from the lower eight miles … Continued
Companies in the global water industry, which is estimated to be valued at over $300 billion,1 provide essential services and products. Where water is scarce, companies process seawater at desalination plants to make it fit for drinking, others recycle wastewater for industrial applications, while others seek to capture rainfall. Engineers and scientists are collaborating on myriad innovations – such as water-efficient seeds and crops in the field of agricultural technology – to ease the pressures on water demand.
