with 🎙️ Josiah Cox, founder and president of Central States Water Resources
💧 Central States Water Resources transforms how water utilities work by acquiring small, often non-compliant systems and then using expertise, technology, and innovation to quickly assess and turn them into reliable infrastructure.

3️⃣ The regulatory, financial, and technical burdens of consolidating water systems and how to overcome them
🎛️ How with 800 M&A moves and 80 in 2021 alone, Central States Water Resources is 1% through its consolidation mission
⚖️ How CSWR aims to build the appropriate scale between radically decentralized systems and large-scale metropolitan water infrastructure in a distributed fashion
💊 Increased regulations and their consequences, PFAS, Bottled Water, Funding, Solving complex issues with proven technology… and much more!
