Improving health through clean water innovation

What We Do


We develop and evaluate technologies and programs for providing safe water. Our research is supported by grants and contracts from philanthropic foundations and development agencies. We collaborate with academic groups, and we publish our results in peer-reviewed journals.


We translate proven innovations into local impact by partnering with public and private institutions that are committed to providing safe water. Our clients include UN agencies, international NGOs, development finance institutions, and water suppliers.
