Clearford Water Systems Inc.
Clearford is a provider of unified water management and sanitation systems. Clearford has refined and proven its proprietary Clearford One™ technology over more than 25 years of in-the-field operating experience and data. Clearford One™ is a better, more sustainable way, to build sanitation—it lasts longer than conventional systems, needs far less water to operate, and costs less to build, operate and maintain. It also enables efficient integration with systems for rainwater harvesting, water distribution and recycling, all of which Clearford is able to deploy for its customers.
Headquartered in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, Clearford has four support offices across the province of Ontario and a development office in India. Clearford operates approximately 200 water and wastewater treatment plants throughout Ontario. Our diverse team of licensed engineers and operators deliver the entire spectrum of water and wastewater infrastructure services. From conceptual design, regulatory approval, fabrication & installation, to operations and regulatory compliance, Clearford offers everything required for any water infrastructure challenge and takes responsibility for regulatory compliance at every step.
In November 2017, Clearford acquired Koester Canada and its Team Aquatic operations division, now Clearford Waterworks. In May 2019, Clearford acquired ASI Water and completed the assembly of pieces required to offer integrated water services under a utility-like business model.

Water infrastructure management is changing, and Clearford is leading the way.
While large scale solutions have a place in an increasingly urban world, the runaway costs of maintaining these centralized facilities pose a significant challenge to society. The land required and environmental impacts are equally amplified in ways we are only just recognizing, as earth and water resources become more stressed.
Clearford is committed to a different model of sustainability—one that seeks local solutions that respect people and the environment.
Clearford’s approach to optimizing the design and installation of water infrastructure for long term sustainability enables responsible development and prosperity for communities. Clearford solutions are more efficient, longer lasting and less expensive than conventional systems.
