About us

Making Waves

Making Waves is a digital news site from Xylem. Although the site was launched in 2012, its history as a print magazine dates back to the 1960s.

Over the years, Xylem’s solutions have expanded to cover a wide range of technologies and industries. The company’s products and services can move, treat, analyze and monitor water, and return it safely to the environment.

Our goal is still the same: to help you solve your water challenges by sharing stories about new products, best practices and customer solutions.
