Celebrating Expansion: Welcoming Our First Client in Alabama!

AKRON, OH & OPELIKA, AL (March 21, 2024) - We’re thrilled to welcome our first utility bringing us to warmer weather, Opelika Utilities!

We remain steadfast in our dedication to empowering utilities across the nation, providing them with new and innovative technology to enhance their water quality management as we expand our efforts.

Matt McDougald, Opelika Utilities’ General manager, remarked: “Opelika Utilities is excited to partner with Fontus Blue to bring our treatment plant operations into modern times. The ability to capture and leverage institutional knowledge from our experienced staff into a digital twin will be crucial to improving current operations and bringing the next generation of operators into an exciting and dynamic environment built for success. Ever-increasing costs of operation require us to challenge the traditional methods of sticking with what works and leveraging expanded knowledge for truly optimizing treatment chemistry and dosing. The ability to do all of this in a digital environment during flash upsets will be a game changer!”

As we venture into Alabama, our mission remains unchanged: to empower water utilities to produce exceptional water quality through multi-objective treatment optimization.

Ashley Bair, Director of Client Success at Fontus Blue, shared: "I'm excited to partner with our first client in Alabama. The team there is proactive, open to innovation, and strongly committed to sustainability. We couldn’t ask for a better team to work with!”
