Ground/Water Treatment & Technology LLC (GWTT) has received a majority growth investment from funds managed by the New York private equity firm Ember Infrastructure.

Wharton, New Jersey-headquartered GWTT designs, fabricates, installs and operates dewatering and water treatment systems throughout the United States.

Ember is very excited to be partnering with the seasoned team at GWTT as we look to augment the company’s ability to support more projects in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and additional markets as its customers pull them into new geographies,” said Ember Principal Caleb Powers, who will join GWTT’s board of directors.

“With a partner like Ember, the opportunities for GWTT and our employees increase significantly, and we could not be more excited about the path ahead,” said GWTT president Rich Worthington.
