Today we’d like to introduce you to Lani Dolifka.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I used to live near a designated Superfund site which is land that has been contaminated by hazardous waste and qualifies for EPA cleanup. The community’s groundwater contained 600 documented chemicals and we were told not to drink our tap water, leaving us to rely on alternative sources for our water like expensive plastic water bottles.
Because of these issues, my husband and I, with the help of our family and friends, developed a miniature water purification kiosk that took municipal water and produced high quality drinking water. The result was our first Watermill Express station that produced pure drinking water at an affordable price. That was a little over 30 years ago. Now, we’ve grown to have more than 1,300 locations across the country.
