LincolnX Featured: JRH Water Management – Making agriculture sustainable

LincolnX Featured takes a look at our LincolnX members, profiling their firm and highlighting key developments within their business.  

This week’s LincolnX member is JRH Water Management, a company which works to provide knowledge, products and services in rainwater harvesting.

JRH Water Management was born from seeing a gap in a new up and coming market of Agricultural Water Solutions, working closely with agriculture and associated business to develop systems to collect and distribute water around farms across the UK.

JRH Water Management work to design, supply, and install rainwater harvesting and water technologies, taking care of the entire process.

Director Michael Jorden, said: “Farms grew up around a natural water source, but when mains water came onto farms, this source became forgotten.

“Agriculture harvests many things, so why not harvest water?”

“Remove the reliance on mains water and take control of the input of water, save on bills and increase profits.

“Water is the lifeblood of the world, so why is it not thought about when looking at business inputs?”

From there, JRH started a new market trend in agricultural water management, and are the only company in the UK who is solely dedicated to agricultural water management.

Michael continues: “We are ‘market leaders’ not ‘market followers’ – something most businesses in the world cannot genuinely say.

“Whilst developing and marketing agricultural rainwater harvesting, we saw other angles in the market to move into, such as high scale water systems, transfer, treatment and water collection from natural sources.

“This is another unique and forward-thinking technology, and we strive to always bring cutting-edge solutions to our clients to allow them to maximise their use of the new growing market.

“We also collect water off roofs, for example a 650m2 roof with 25mm of rainfall going through the filter to the tank store is 14,625L!

“This shows what is possible to be collected, and in most cases our systems collect hundreds of thousands of litres of water per year and in some cases millions of litres!”

The team has worked hard to gain contacts in the industry at a national level to promote and educate the industry into sustainable, money saving and end-product quality-increasing solutions.

They hope to aid livestock being less reliant on antibiotics, an increase in general health and feed conversions, higher yielding crops and better chemical reactions in natural water.

Another important part of their systems is being used as a flood prevention device in controlling water from buildings before (if not used) going to drains.

JRH are also providing systems and solutions to factories and large scale industry to control and collect water for business use.

JRH are always striving forwards in R&D projects, providing services to clients while keeping the industry informed and educated on solutions to benefit their business.
