WORK WITH TRUEPANI
TruePani brings together a team of engineers, public health professionals, and project managers to tackle water quality issues and advance cleantech solutions. We compile, analyze, and communicate complex environmental data under a variety of scenarios.

Lead in drinking water is a serious concern with profound health effects. Lead in school drinking water is a widespread problem due to outdated infrastructure, dead ends in premise plumbing, and long periods of stagnation. Nearly 40% of public schools in the United States that have tested their drinking water have found lead.
The TruePani team collects water samples builds a customized lead prevention plan for your school or child care facility that includes data on water sources tested, identifies trends in results to predict at-risk sources, provides remediation tools, educational and communication templates and presentations, and helps with state compliance. Our solutions-based approach focuses on emerging research on understanding the way lead enters drinking water and the inherent variability when testing for lead in drinking water.
We follow AAP and EPA recommendations and process all water samples with a NELAC-accredited state-certified lab facility. We have worked with school districts throughout the southeast US and are available for schools and childcare facilities nationwide.
Residential and Commercial Water Solutions
Knowing what's in your home drinking water and selecting the right filter or purification solution can be challenging. TruePani offers solutions that we have independently vetted and will coordinate with a team of plumbers to complete installation for your home or business.
Water Testing and Analysis
We offer sampling and testing for drinking water (lead, copper, nitrates, pesticides, arsenic, E.coli, and more), seep analysis, and more. At your convenience, a member of our team will travel to your home, collect a sample of your drinking water, and transport it for lab testing. Your results will be emailed to you within five business days. If a problem is detected, the TruePani team will reserve a 30-minute phone meeting to discuss solution options at no additional cost.
Zero Emission Bus Route Modeling & Utility Rate Analysis
TruePani has worked with transit agencies across the country to understand the impact of implementing electric buses. Using Autonomie software by Argonne National Laboratory, we have completed route modeling by analyzing GPS data and bus models for various transit agencies around the United States to prepare agencies for deploying zero-emission battery-electric buses as environmentally friendly alternatives to diesel buses. Transitioning to a zero-emission fleet can provide fuel cost savings in addition to environmental benefits. We analyze rate options from your local utility and determine options for fleet management and charging structure to optimize energy and demand costs.
Water Quality Training
TruePani's training services are designed for non-profit organizations working on safe drinking water projects in underserved communities. Through this training, field staff will learn how to test drinking water for total coliforms and fecal indicator bacteria such E.coli. This type of testing is useful to show the efficacy of water systems (such as wells and filters) and monitor projects. Training varies by organization and project need. Typical training includes an overview to microbial contamination in water systems in underserved communities, the benefits of testing for contamination, hands-on demonstrations on how to test for total and fecal coliforms, hands-on demonstration on enumeration methodology, forms for field staff to utilize while testing, report templates for project results, support phone calls after training for the project duration.
International WASH Work
TruePani began by working on a point-of-use disinfection technology in rural India. Our 2016 white paper covers the use of copper as an antimicrobial agent and our Concept Validation report, including field data, can be accessed here.
