Established in 2011, the Water’s Next national awards program “honours the achievements and ideas of individuals and companies that successfully work to change water” in Canada.” The Awards Gala presented 13 awards to individuals, NGOs, Governments, Academia, and Businesses enabling positive changes in water conservation. Canadian water leaders from organizations like The Water Institute, WaterTAP, the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association, and the City of Guelph were among the award selection committee.
“We are excited to receive this award,” said Venky Weylagro, Vice President of Eddy Home’s Sales and Marketing. “To be a fellow nominee among such an esteemed and passionate group of water innovators and change makers is an honour in itself, and to be chosen as Water’s Next’s Early Adoption/Innovator winner is incredible.”
“Water conservation is not necessarily top of mind for Canadians, and many of us are unaware that 13% of our home’s overall water consumption is due to leaks,” elaborated Shawn Dym, President of Eddy Home. “Our system alerts homeowners to these leaks, saving them from significant water waste. In addition, our solution has demonstrated further water savings of 5% through education and awareness on a home’s overall water usage. As a result of our technology, homeowners see average water savings of 14% through awareness and empowerment.”
