History

For over twenty years, Worrell Water Technologies and its predecessor companies have been developing and refining our flagship Living Machine® system. With over 50 systems installed or in construction throughout the world, this technology is the confirmed leader in ecological on-site wastewater treatment. A continuing investment in Research & Development keeps Living Machine Systems far ahead of the competition.

In 2006, Worrell Water Technologies acquired HydroSecure®, the best-in-class system of on-site water purification developed for the US Departments of State and Defense. The technology, which was tested by government investigators against attack-level contamination by biological, chemical, and radiological threats, is now available to corporations, businesses and individuals.  HydroSecure is the only system proven to produce purified water to better than EPA standards under extreme conditions.

The company is now in final stage development of Curoxin® Chlorine Dioxide, a ground-breaking chemical which is being developed to disinfect water in a way that is intended to be non-toxic, leave zero residue, and be completely safe for the environment.  

The company's office and research and development facilities are located in Charlottesville, Virginia.
