Company Overview – Digital Water is an information platform purpose-built for the water sector. The cloud-based Digital Water software solution assesses consumption, operating, and tariff data to help operators schedule different functions throughout the wastewater treatment plant thereby enhancing water quality through the optimization of the treatment process, the enhancement of operational efficiency, and the reduction of both energy consumption and the resulting costs.

Environmental Impact – Wastewater treatment plants account for 2.0% of U.S. energy consumption and, per the EPA, electricity is the 2nd largest operating cost at these plants. The energy cost to adequately operate these plants has grown significantly since most of these plants were built due to population increases and the implementation of newer technologies required to comply with ever-changing water regulations. While managing peak energy demand is not a new concept, municipal wastewater treatment plants are historically conservative and adverse to the risk associated with modifying treatment regimes.
