Mahers in the newsIn March 2019 Sam traveled to Washington to meet with members of Congress to discuss the emergence of PFAS contaminates throughout the country including here in our own state. The chemical is estimated to be found in 99% of the earth’s population. Widely used since the 1970s this group of over 4000 chemicals is used as non-stick coating in cookware, food packaging, wrinkle-free clothing, spill-proof clothing, Scotch guard in tents, carpets and many, MANY other items found in every home. The water treatment industry is proactively addressing this issue with dealers like Maher's meeting with leaders.
On April 10th, 2019, Sam, Danielle, and Bill went to Madison to work with the local state government to address the same contaminate issue as well as Nitrate intrusion and remediation, lead, Arsenic, and a plethora of other water-related contaminates.

Bill Maher to be Honored with Lifetime Achievement AwardMadison WI – William “Bill” Maher, former owner of Maher Water Corporation in Stevens Point, WI will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Water Quality Association of Wisconsin (WQAW).
Bill Maher was born and raised in Stevens Point, WI; the same year his parents Paul and Lydia Maher went into a business called Maher Soft Water Service. The business began in Paul and Lydia’s home on Main Street where the dining room became the office and garage behind their house became the shop. Bill is the oldest of five and all grew up surrounded by the water business, but it was Bill that had a passion for carrying on the family business
As a boy, Bill would accompany his dad on trips to the local feed mill to pick up 10-pound bags of salt which were used to regenerate the manual softeners of the day. His dad was growing a portable exchange tank business and as a teen, Bill helped out in the regeneration plant, which was still the garage behind the house. Bill would ride in the truck with his dad doing routes, and as soon as he had his driver’s license, he was able to run routes by himself on Saturdays and after school.
