ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) — TitletownTech has announced its investment in a climate technology startup.

StormSensor uses sensors, data and software to prevent stormwater pollution, sewage overflow and flooding.

The information collected by StormSensor empowers government municipalities, utility authorities and environmental leaders with data to understand and manage conditions in stormwater and wastewater systems.

“As climate change impacts the environment we love and live in, it is critical for innovation and forward-thinking entrepreneurs to tackle the massive challenges that has been created. StormSensor’s solutions show tremendous progress in the area of enviro-tech, and we’re thrilled to be a part of driving environmental improvement for cities, communities, and community members everywhere,” said Craig Dickman, managing director at TitletownTech.

Many communities still use traditional methods of watershed tracking, which can result in misinformed decision making, slow response times and detrimental outcomes.

As StormSensor CEO and Founder Erin Rothman states in this Public Spend Forum article, “sewage overflow is a $32 billion problem in the United States.”
