In 2013, our founder, Dr. Jason Caldwell, had the pleasure of sitting down with several experts from Tennessee Valley Authority over lunch – discussing the grand plans of full quantitative risk analysis for hydrologic hazards analysis efforts forthcoming across the entire river basin. This conversation provided the impetus to consider branching out from State and Federal government into the realm of private consulting – and Weather & Water, Inc. was born in early 2014. Recognizing a need for real-world experience, Dr. Caldwell explored opportunies in water rights modeling and extensive work in precipitation-frequency at small-to-medium-sized firms – finding the missing link to use of complex data in the “language barrier” between engineers and scientists. As a multi-disciplinarian, he sought to overcome this limitation through quantitative methods (i.e., statistics). Hence, today Weather & Water allows the power of cloud computing to perform the work of many frustrated data clerks, while focusing on the ease-of-use and applicability of tools like DAART and CRAFTEA. Because, at the end of the day, as my mom bore into Jason’s skull – “Customer Service = Company Success” – and that is what we live to achieve!
