Resiliency starts with sustainability
Our goal is to support critical emergency and short term water needs in the wake of catastrophic events by processing and delivering drinking water (bulk and packaged) harvested from the ocean in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner. We will provide a safe, reliable and cost effective alternative to bottled water to those in need by following predictable weather events and rapidly responding to disasters while maintaining complete autonomy from coastal infrastructure.
