Clearford Water Systems Inc. from Ottawa was recently awarded the Frost & Sullivan 2017 Enabling Technology Leadership Award. The best practices award was in the Global Decentralized Water & Wastewater Treatment category.
Frost & Sullivan noted the success of Clearford as a provider of unified water management and sanitation systems. Specifically, the award recognized the Fetherston project in Kemptville, Ontario, where delivery of a Clearford One® wastewater system with containerized membrane bioreactor treatment prevented the eviction of 80 residents from their homes due to health concerns over failing septic systems. Clearford’s Jambudiyapura sanitation project in India was also cited for its impact in making it the first open defecation free village in the State of Gujarat and leading to additional project opportunities in India.
The award also recognized Clearford’s future strategy for growth and market expansion. The company recently disclosed that it is executing a new strategic business plan to support its growth through a series of acquisitions that will enhance control of all aspects related to delivering cost-effective water and wastewater services, including treatment plant fabrication and long-term system operations. The first acquisition is expected to be completed before the end of the fiscal year.
