Water Saver Solutions is made up of people who authentically care about bringing further safety, efficiency and operational excellence to your organization.
Founder & President
Charles “Chuck” 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 WSS’s methodology relies on accurate metrics that quantify the potential large-scale savings and qualify the end user for utility rebates and incentives. WSS identifies and helps obtain available rebates and incentives, reducing red tape and delivering maximum savings with a rapid return on investment. Thanks to WSS, healthcare facilities save millions of gallons of water and reduce utility operating expenses every year.
Chuck is a graduate of Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses, an intensive business education program developed by Babson College. Water Saver Solutions is a federally certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
