Israel’s national water company, Mekorot, will set up shop in the U.S. to work on innovations in water system security, treatment and distribution, as well as waste water collection and expanded energy sources.

The company is sending WaTech, an Entrepreneurship and Partnership Center for Water Technologies Program under Mekorot control, to Akron, Ohio, to assist the city in water infrastructure development, and to develop related business and economic initiatives.

Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic, who recently visited Israel, said that “not only did we come back with a deal with Mekorot WaTech, but we also were introduced to other energy related businesses who are now interested in introducing their technologies to the United States, specifically to Akron,” according to Israel National News.
