About Powwater

Informal private water vendors fill this gap but the service comes at a high social cost: exploitative prices, poor water quality, and use of unsustainable water sources. Powwater’s solution is meant to disrupt these market dynamics to make the water purchasing experience more reliable, affordable, and transparent.
