About Us

H2bid provides web-based services for water/wastewater utilities and the vendors and contractors who supply them with goods and services. We provide solutions to help vendors and contractors sell to water and wastewater utilities. With more than 700,000 bids posted on the site, H2bid is the leading source for companies seeking opportunities in the $111 billion water and wastewater utility market.

H2bid also has unique services for utilities. H2bid Parts is an online material standards manual for parts and equipment, as well as a virtual community that enables utilities to communicate with other utilities and suppliers regarding parts and equipment needs. H2bid Parts is powered by AURSI.
H2bid also provides cost effective services to help municipal water utilities perform the risk and resiliency assessments required under Section 2013 of America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018 (AWIA).

Water is a vital resource. Yet, the water industry is facing unprecedented challenges, including droughts, a crumbling infrastructure, and a fragmented marketplace of utilities, vendors, and contractors. H2bid enables utilities to access the best and most cost effective solutions and to ensure that they are getting the most out of their budgets. Our goal is to help ensure that clean water is available for generations to come.
