About Us

A proven Solution

Phosphorus Free Water Solutions is a group of scientists, engineers, chemists, construction and financial professionals, all under one roof who, together, have created a solution to remove the problem-causing nutrients from water. Our patented processes and systems return clean “marsh- and lake-ready” water to its source requiring a minimal footprint and without creating harmful byproducts.



Using a pay-for-performance financial model, in which we bear all financial and performance risk, we can provide a solution that can be deployed faster and without the upfront and significant capital expense that typically comes with building water treatment systems. We have the science, the technology, and the credibility of a proven solution behind our work. From the lab to our shores and river banks, our team is united behind the mission of cleaning our most valuable resource – water.
