Welcoming Our First Client in Oregon!

AKRON, OH & Eugene, OR (February 21, 2024) - We’re thrilled to welcome our first utility in the beautiful state of Oregon, the Eugene Water & Electric Board!

Our commitment to supporting utilities nationwide by empowering them with the essential resources to improve their water quality management remains unwavering as we continue expanding.

Ray Leipold, EWEB’s Water Treatment Supervisor at the Hayden Bridge Filtration Plant, remarked: “Multiple parameter optimization of chemicals and water quality is not easily achievable. This can give us the flexibility to save money when there is good raw water quality and then switch to focus on improving quality when the raw water is challenging to treat."

As we venture into Oregon, 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 thrilled to be working with our first client in Oregon. The staff are proactive, embrace innovation, and are deeply committed to sustainability.”
