Charles Bragdon founded Water Saver Solutions in 2008 to meet the dual objectives of helping commercial and institutional facilities cut utility costs and comply with California’s mandate for 20% reduction in water use by 2020. A thorough understanding of healthcare regulations related to water usage has solidified a niche for WSS in this stringent environment.
Combining 22 years US Navy technical background with over ten years’ experience owning a home construction business, Chuck has developed a proprietary water assessment strategy for this highly regulated industry. The backbone of his methodology relies on accurate metrics that quantify the potential large scale savings as well as qualify the end user for the utility rebates and incentives resulting from these savings. Chuck has further streamlined his methodology to maximize savings for his clients while minimizing the length of return on original investment. WSS clients are now saving millions of gallons of water and reducing utility operating expenses every year.
