Happy Thursday!

It was 1995, and thieves had broken into Elon Musk's car. 

"Could not afford to pay for repairs, so I fixed almost everything on that car from parts in the junkyard. Ironically, that's me replacing broken side window glass. The circle is complete lol," Musk said.

WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES TRUMP WOULD LIKELY VETO BILL REGULATING 'FOREVER CHEMICALS' IN DRINKING WATER

That was last week's headline in Newsweek.

What's this about?

You're going to hear a lot more about perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which are generated by things like nonstick coatings on pans.

They are called "forever toxins" because they don't seem to leave the human body.

Good morning!

Timing can be an amazing thing. In my last CEO Briefing of the year, I said,

"The big centralized water systems, which are paid for by citizens, should be growing to meet the population demands and all this stuff I just talked about, but they are basically just trying to keep up with the degradation of their systems.

What's Going On In Compton?

Good morning!

"Compton district that served ‘disgusting’ drinking water will cease to exist", announced an LA Times article earlier this year. 

OK, but the problems with this "brown water" are ongoing.

So, last month, my brother and co-founder Nicholas and I met with a pair of well-connected Compton citizens to find out what was going on.

In his 1990 book, The Macintosh Way, Guy Kawasaki wrote:

“The Macintosh Way of doing business means doing the right thing and doing things right…. It is a way of doing business for people who are foolish or brave enough to try to make a difference in a world of mediocrity.”

Good morning!

On TV last week, I discussed a major problem (view clip here). Let me set the stage.

New York City's water supply system is among the finest in the world. New York barely needs to treat its water. If you've tasted the water, you know.

Happy Thursday!

This week, Dan Early's Modular Water Systems signed up another micro-brewery. This one is in Southern California.

What's amazing is that it took just three days from the first contact to the client's final acceptance of the $70,000 proposal.

Three days. And water deals usually take months!

Why did the client choose us? Three reasons: "Quality of MWS, water savings and cost."

You can see our own notes right here:

Replacing 26 Million Septic Systems

Good morning!

We're starting to understand the full potential for Modular Water Home™.

Last week I talked about the terrible problem that rural communities have with "their own, private Flint", as the New York Times put it.

But these rural homes are themselves part of the problem! 

Yep, it's those septic tanks, which are basically a big filtration system into the ground. 

(I'll discuss this situation — and the opportunity! — on my CEO Briefing this afternoon at 5pm PST. Just click here to book your spot.)

Environmental disaster

Wayne University study states: "...for some time now contamination of groundwater from septic systems has been second only to contamination from industrial uses."
