The company serves a wide variety of customers ranging from State and Federal government entities to homeowners associations and wineries in California and Nevada. Virtually all Fortune 500 companies located in the Bay Area, including major technology, refining, and defense contractors rely on Aquatic Environments to protect their critical infrastructure and beautify their aquatic resources.
