Climate change, population growth, and industrial farming are contributing to increased dependence on groundwater as well as rapid changes in groundwater storage. By launching the first ever non-invasive, consumer-friendly groundwater information system, Wellntel enlists citizens as groundwater stakeholders and advocates, so that groundwater, once the unmeasured resource, can be managed sustainably. Since launch in 2015, Wellntel has sold systems in 18 states and collected over 1.6 million groundwater readings.
Wellntel CEO Marian Singer said, “Wellntel is proud to be tackling global water problems with simple and useful solutions created here in Milwaukee. We’re excited to be recognized with this prestigious award.”
The award adds to an impressive string of accolades earned by Wellntel, which was the runner up in ImagineH20’s Global Water Start-Up Competition, was inducted in Batch II of the Brew, and won the Golden Blender at the 2015 FoodIT competition.
