City of Wichita Falls Approves Evaporation Reduction Aid Project for Lake Arrowhead Reservoir
The City of Wichita Falls, Texas has approved a project to apply WaterSavr biodegradable polymer from Flexible Solutions International Inc. to the Lake Arrowhead Reservoir that supplies the City of Wichita Falls. Flexible Solutions is the developer and manufacturer of biodegradable polymers for oil extraction, detergent ingredients and water treatment as well as crop nutrient availability chemistry, and they also manufactures biodegradable and environmentally safe water and energy conservation technologies.
WaterSavr is an evaporation reduction aid that has significantly reduced water loss in multiple studies around the world. It is approved for use in the USA by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) under Schedule 60. WaterSavr is 100% biodegradable and composed of only food grade ingredients. It is made in the USA. In several studies it has reduced evaporation from reservoirs by more than 30%. Evaporation is the largest form of water loss suffered by reservoirs in the region and it has been calculated that if Wichita Falls can save 10% of the water that normally evaporates each year, the saving would be greater than 1/3 of its annual consumption by the city of the year.
Flexible Solutions would like to thank the staff of Public Works of the City of Wichita Falls, the Mayor, Glenn Barham, and Council as well as Texas State Representative James Frank for the enormous levels of advice and support they have given us during the development of this project and, in advance, for the ongoing support they will provide as WaterSavr™ is deployed to save water for the people of Wichita Falls.

The other divisions manufacture energy and water conservation products for drinking water, agriculture, industrial markets and swimming pools throughout the world. FSI is the developer of WaterSavr™ the world’s first commercially viable water evaporation retardant. WaterSavr™ reduces evaporation by up to 30% on reservoirs, lakes, aqueducts, irrigation canals, ponds and slow moving rivers. Heatsavr™, a “liquid blanket” evaporation retardant for the commercial swimming pool and spa markets, reduces energy costs by 15% to 40% and can result in reduced indoor pool humidity. The Company’s Ecosavr™ product targets the residential swimming pool market providing the same savings as Heatsavr™.
