Clean water startups in Washington state are getting more investment. Last week it was water purification startup HaloSource, which raised $15 million. Today water treatment company Clear Water Compliance Services says it has raised $25 million from Plainfield Asset Management.

The startup based in Lynwood, Washington, treats water at construction and industrial sites. Seattle PI’s John Cook wrote about the funding this morning, and we just confirmed it via a phone call with Clear Water’s CEO Thomas Leggiere.

Water purification and management startups are an underfunded clean tech sector. (You probably noticed our lack of stories in that category.) IBM’s Drew Clark called it a “sleeper area” for venture investing. We’re chatting with Leggiere at greater length this afternoon and we’ll add more details then.

  1. Staying on the water purification theme, I would like to mention Energy Recovery Inc, http://www.energyrecovery.com, my friend HP Michelet’s company, and one of the hottest players on the water desalinization scene worldwide. Amazing technology. And lots of big companies lining up to buy. . .

  2. “Water purification and management startups are an underfunded clean tech sector. ” That is true to a point, however Dean Kamen the brilliant inventor has literally spent countless dollars on revolutionizing water purification for undeveloped countries in Africa and throughout the world really. And he is still actively involved in honing and progressing water purification as a whole.
