Company Summary

California agriculture needs at least 2.5 million acre-feet per year of new water supplies - otherwise one million acres of the most productive farmland in the world will be forced to fallow in the coming years. One third of the water in California is too salty (brackish) for Ag to use. Our company, Global Water Innovations, is bringing a toolbox of disruptive tech to market to clean this water so that it is usable for Ag at an affordable price.
