Alpine Water isn’t your average water treatment company. We are scientists and engineers that constantly pursue the cutting edge of water quality science and technology in order to provide the best possible solutions for our clients. As a small, local company we are focused on individual client relationships and offering the best possible service to our community.

We don’t offer a one size fits all approach and we do not exclusively represent a brand or product line so we are free to combine the best available technologies from dozens of manufacturers to provide our clients with the most advanced solutions available. High performance technologies are typically more efficient, require less long term maintenance, and are usually more cost effective than conventional technologies.

We provide free evaluation and consultation to understand the specific issues with each particular water source then find the most suitable solution to fit our client’s needs.

Principal Water Resource Engineer at Alpine Water

Peter Manka, Owner of Alpine Water

Peter Manka is the Principal Water Resource Engineer at Alpine Water. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Master of Science degree in Water Resources. He has been involved in water resource engineering for 17 years and began Alpine Water in Big Sky, Montana in 2009.

When not engineering water, he enjoys skiing, biking, boating, fishing, and camping in the mountains around Big Sky with his wife and three daughters.

Alpine Water gave us personal service and an innovative approach to our water quality problems. Replacement of our old water treatment system with their solutions has saved us time and money over the long run and greatly improved the quality of our water. - Mark in Big Sky, MT

Alpine Water fixed the problems that our previous water quality companies could not and it’s great to know that they are local and available at a moment’s notice if we ever need them. – Shelly in Big Sky, MT

Their commercial, salt-free water softening system saved us thousands of dollars and produces much higher quality water when compared to salt systems. – Joseph in Big Sky, MT
