ZIONSVILLE, Ind., May 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 120Water, a digital water platform in use at more than 180,000 locations across the nation, announced the formation of a partner program to deliver comprehensive solutions for safe drinking water programs.
The 120Water Partner Ecosystem includes best-of-breed companies delivering technology solutions, hardware and devices, professional consulting, and laboratory services to help government officials and water quality professionals to more easily implement and maintain safe drinking water initiatives–without needing to add costly in-house resources or piece together various solutions.
Newly formed partnerships within the 120Water partner program include:
Daupler, a Kansas City, Mo.-based listening platform for utilities. Utilities tap the Daupler platform to centralize residents’ reports of water main breaks, hydrant issues and water quality complaints, and integrate with city smart meters to monitor, identify and triage water issues. By partnering, Daupler can seamlessly notify 120Water of water quality complaints, triggering 120Water to automatically ship residents a tap water testing kit. This responsiveness helps utilities build engagement with residents while demonstrating a customer-centric approach to drinking water safety. Future insight gleaned from the partnership will enable utilities to remain compliant with evolving regulations.
Noah Water Quality Maintenance System, an installed system on water taps and fountains that automatically flushes every three hours to avoid water stagnation that can lead to water quality issues and corrosion. Noah prevents lead and copper from accumulating in pipes while ensuring an adequate supply of orthophosphate to protectively coat pipes. Together, Noah and 120Water give facilities managers and residents total peace of mind that drinking water is free of lead and other harmful contaminants. As many buildings and schools sit empty during the COVID crisis, the need for comprehensive solutions that reduce the risk of stagnant water in building plumbing systems has never been higher.
KHAFRA Engineering, one of the nation’s largest minority-owned engineering consulting companies with offices throughout the country. KHAFRA is especially skilled at the facility management of water and wastewater treatment plants. Together, KHAFRA and 120Water can leverage modern, scalable solutions that drive efficiency while providing a “command central” that gives customers total transparency.
“The goal of these partnerships is to provide our joint customers the information and automated solutions they need to ensure a quality drinking water supply, and to stay compliant with water quality regulations,” said Megan Glover, CEO of 120Water. “We are building out an entire ecosystem of partners, each of whom shares our mission of streamlining and modernizing complex drinking water initiatives.”
Water professionals across the country rely on 120Water to streamline and modernize their most complex drinking water initiatives. The 120Water platform consists of sample & filter kits, cloud-based software, and services used to manage and execute water programs at scale while saving operational resources. 120Water solutions are used in 180,000 locations across the United States for clients including the city of Newark (NJ), Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, Chicago Public Schools, Indiana Finance Authority, and Mott McDonald.
