Israeli company starts water service at Sinclair

Sinclair Community College, the city of Dayton and Montgomery County are part of a pilot program to test an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic bottled water.

An Israeli start-up company unveiled today three smart water stations at Sinclair, a first step toward expanding its services stateside and a milestone for a trade alliance between the Dayton region and the Middle Eastern nation.

Woosh, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is installing three touch-screen stations that allow users to clean and fill water bottles and containers for a fraction of the price of buying bottled water. This will be the company’s first venture into the United States.

In addition to the college, Dayton and Montgomery County also will get Woosh stations, likely in about a month. The jurisdictions each have approved spending $25,000 to participate in the pilot program.
