Kawartha Lakes Economic Development Water Innovation

Over the years there has been a growing need to address the issue surrounding water treatment and conservation. While there are several technologies available that address these challenges the biggest obstacle a company faces is bringing these technologies into the market, where their full potential can be utilized and explored. To address this issue, the Economic Development department at the City of Kawartha Lakes has been working on a Rural Economic Development Water Innovation project to accelerate market adoption of new water and wastewater treatment technologies. This has been done by facilitating access to pilot and demonstration sites, as well as providing business development support, marketing solutions, and strategic planning to new and existing water technology companies.

2015 was a great year for Water Innovation in Kawartha Lakes. The Economic Development Department was able to implement several pilot Water Research Innovation Projects in partnership with the public works department, private industry and new tech start-ups and Fleming College. Below are some highlights from 2015, and some exciting new projects launching in 2016.
