Our Story

Company founders, Russ and Tom Horner, launched "Technology Distributors, Inc." in 1980 in Arlington, Virginia. In 1991, the company moved to its current location in Alexandria, Virginia and officially changed its name to Water Management Inc. 

                                                        In response to the Safe Drinking Water Act                                                            of 1974, Water Management began to look                                                            for innovative, effective, and financially                                                                  savvy ways of saving water. Using E.F.                                                                    Schumacher's book, "Small is Beautiful," as                                                          a guiding principle, Water Management                                                                  continues "to obtain the maximum amount                                                          of well-being with the minimum amount of                                                          consumption."

In 1997, Water Management opened an additional office in Nashville, Tennessee and continued expanding services. Water Management now serves multi-family and senior living facilities, commercial buildings, prisons, schools, universities, military bases, and the hospitality sector.
