Episode 34 - WaterFleet: Creating drinking water where there is no drinking water!

No ratings

“What the water rig is at its core is a mobile water treatment technology, and it dramatically changed the lives of the people living on that site.”

 

Having clean, drinkable water is essential for everyone, no matter where they are. For some on-site workers on remote oil and gas drilling sites, this means transporting in large amounts of bottled water. The result is a large amount of plastic waste from the bottles and air pollution from the extra traffic.

 

WaterFleet provides an alternative solution. Their water treatment technology means that a mobile rig can be hooked up to an existing well or water storage source on site and provide people with clean potable water on tap. As the rig processes the water, it automatically and continually monitors the quality to ensure it’s safe. WaterFleet also uses this technology to provide temporary water solutions to areas that have been affected by natural disasters.

 

Our producer Eva Ruth went to the WaterFleet headquarters in San Antonio, Texas to meet the Director of Business Intelligence, David Meyers. He explains WaterFleet’s mission statement and takes us inside one of the water rigs.
