Disaster Response & Recovery Tool

Our strategic partner Splashlink developed a disaster response & recovery tool for Hurricane Harvey and subsequently the tool has proven valuable as new disasters have occurred within the U.S. and to our neighbors.  The tool was created to support cities, counties, and governments requesting urgent disaster relief water-related solutions for their region and people.

How it works:

If you are a U.S. companies and have an immediate solution in the water space, we urge you to include your solution as an option.
If you are in urgent need of a solution for your area, you can upload your need (and or call) to have it uploaded for you. You will receive a list of vetted U.S. solutions. The goal is to find professionals that can quickly mobilize with their solution to the affected areas.
