The scientific foundation of ESS, in combination with a strong environmental engineering staff, provides a very well-balanced approach in dealing with ecosystem dynamics. They use a very sound scientific investigative basis for their decision making process. I highly recommend ESS to provide long-term pond management oversight.

Water Resource Management Expertise
ESS water specialists have considerable experience in characterizing groundwater and surface water systems to support both clean water and contaminated water projects. They have expertise in water modeling to predict flows, safe yield, and contaminant fate and transport.
