At KETOS, we are ushering in a new era of understanding, one of the most fundamental, critical elements of life: water. Our goal is simple: to improve water quality, safety and conservation – and enhance healthcare on a global scale. We do this by providing the tools and insights needed to optimize water usage, ensure resource efficiency and provide water safety assurance – and by making these tools affordable and accessible.
Fracking, mining, pollution, runoff, aging water infrastructures, pesticides, and fertilizers are just a few of the potential dangers to our water resources – that is, if water resources are to be had at all. Today, over 2.5 billion people don’t have access to clean water, and 5 million die annually due to water-borne diseases in developing nations. The actionable data necessary to measure and manage water usage, consumption metrics and pollution levels has not been available without manual intervention or sample lab testing – until now. Agriculture is one of the largest consumers of water, while also impacting heavily the quality of water released into the streams and rivers.
