GWTT has 25-plus years of experience partnering with clients to solve complex water treatment challenges, including the cleanup of Superfund and former manufactured gas plant sites, civil and infrastructure dewatering, coal ash pond closure and treating for emerging contaminants of concern that include PFAS compounds, 1,4-dioxane, hexavalent chromium and many others, addressing some of the most important water quality challenges in the U.S.
“Ember is very excited to be partnering with the seasoned team at GWTT as we look to augment the company’s ability to support more projects in the Northeast, mid-Atlantic and additional markets as its customers pull them into new geographies,” Ember Principal Caleb Powers, who will join the company’s board of directors, said.
“GWTT, with Ember as a financial partner, now has the capability to grow all segments of our business, including expansion into new geographic markets. With a partner like Ember, the opportunities for GWTT and our employees increase significantly, and we could not be more excited about the path ahead,” said GWTT President Rich Worthington.
