ABOUT MOONSHOT MISSIONS
At Moonshot Missions, we believe a person’s zip code should not determine the quality of the water they drink or the services they receive. As infrastructure ages and funds become scarce, delivering safe drinking water and protecting local waterways is increasingly expensive and challenging. Unfortunately, the communities in greatest need are the most challenged as they struggle to maintain essential services. Moonshot Missions assists water utilities in underserved communities identify and adopt field-tested solutions that improve operational performance, reduce costs and/or even generate new revenue. The team is led by George Hawkins, the former CEO of DC Water and national leader and speaker in the clean and safe water sectors. During his tenure at DC Water, Mr. Hawkins achieved his own “moonshot”, transforming DC Water into a world class, innovative, customer-oriented powerhouse utility.
