The Water Tech Alliance connects experts at water and wastewater companies (300+) here in San Diego, (City and County), together with policy leaders, teachers and students, to jointly examine tech solutions that can ensure freshwater, quality, cost-effectiveness, and climate resilience for municipalities and industries in our arid region, cross-border–and the world.
Are YOU engaged in the freshwater and wastewater sectors? You know San Diego leads the Americas in desalinating seawater into freshwater and potable reuse of wastewater —and you know that further innovations in industrial reuse onsite, stormwater reuse, and renewable power will enable our cross-border region to become a world-leading model of water sustainability, like Israel and Singapore.
