OLYMPIA, Wash. — In an exciting success story for rural Asotin County, Green Water Energy LLC has unified and relocated its growing operations from Idaho and Colorado to a new headquarters in Clarkston, Wash. The Washington Department of Commerce provided a $100,000 grant from the state’s economic development strategic reserve fund to Southeast Washington Economic Development Association (SEWEDA) to support the move, leveraging an estimated total $6 million capital investment by the company.
Established 10 years ago as a small plumbing company, Green Water Energy is a Small Business Administration-certified, economically disadvantaged women-owned small business, and Native American Indian-owned small business. The company has managed projects and constructed facilities for various state and federal agencies, specializing in providing mechanical, electrical and architectural upgrades for industrial, education, and commercial projects. Clients include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Forest Service, Indian Health Services and numerous state agencies in Washington, Idaho and others.
“Awarding this grant to help Green Water Energy move its headquarters and operations to Clarkston aligns with Gov. Inslee’s goals to strengthen communities by encouraging high-wage, technical skills job growth in rural areas throughout the state,” said Commerce Director Lisa Brown.
