Why do we use Chevron as an example?
Place your mouse cursor atop these words for the answer.
Why should we show off our work with Chevron?
Chevron owned Ortho, during most of the period of time we were able to display a biological solution.
I was quite surprised, during an interview of us to be considered as a contractor for a different client, when the gal interviewing me suggested that we should not have allowed ourselves to work for Chevron. I guess she is a "Fall on her Sword" type of person, but I look at it differently.
Ortho owned several aquatic herbicide labels, and a Chevron executive didn't think we could do what we claimed. Since the water in the lake was for firewater, they couldn't use their own products to keep water clarity. I was, during a meeting with Chevron, accused of being unforthcoming about what chemicals he said, "Must be there. You can't keep water this clear without them."
I replied, "You're Chevron. There has to be a gas chromatograph in one of these buildings. Take a sample, and run it for whatever chemical compounds you think must be here." They did, and found there were none.
Property developers intending to include lakes or water features can predict the health and success of both, "before" you build them. Contact us to learn more. Professional Lake Managers will have a new set of "non-chemical" tools to generate increased revenue; assist clients; develop new clients, and develop trusted relationships with clients.
We gather all the information required to make an informed assessment, before we step in.
We refuse "Grant Money" from "Research Foundations" that covertly support specific products.
We work with your support teams to create a working design, and insure local, county, or state approvals.
We insure water quality meets any compliances both on. and off your site. We help avoid the need for NPDES.
No restrictions on the use of pesticides? Then you likely don't need us. If you're limited in chemical use, or prefer not to use them, then we move ahead.
We request information related to Source Water, and Areas of Land Use Types. We confirm the latest research data to be certain.
Our years of research and practical experience are plugged into the programs we developed to provide answers.
Once we have assessed the goals, we develop potential solutions, costs, and time frames.
We have finished the computer modeling and assessment and return it to the client.
We prepare our design documents, mathematical calculations, and present them to your engineers, or contractor, or lake manager.
Aquatic IPM is a technique of surface water management. We provide services through our associates and representatives.
If you're in the surface water management business, consider
applying to become our regional representative.
If you're a civil engineer, and interested in a "non" chemical method of water quality management, please use our contact form below.
I no longer post addresses, or phone numbers on web sites, during an age when creep hackers frequently sell the information, and your email box gets filled with hundreds of addresses, through which you must search for a client's communications. There is a method to obfuscate an email address, and I use that to provide an address. To contact me, please use this email address:
