KOTA Territory startup aims to make drinking water better worldwide


Water covers 70 percent of the world's surface but only one percent is consumable.

One KOTA Territory company is hoping to change that.

CalxAqua (kalks-Aqua) is researching and developing ways to make normally undrinkable water, safe to drink.

Founder, Mat Peabody says he plans to partner with Pete Lien and Sons to build a standalone company that will sell the technology to municipalities and water treatment operations.

CalxAqua has been using South Dakota School of Mines as a home base but will soon move to a new building.

Peabody says, "it's a very good opportunity for Rapid City and think it's a good example of what can happen when academia, government, and industry work together.

CalxAqua won first prize as well as $20000 dollars at the Governor Giant Vision competition.
