Honored for support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Award for our A-Pod Technology (U.S. Patent No. 10,745,879) to sustainably and permanently remove nuisance and harmful algae, cyanobacteria, excess nutrients and cyanotoxins from fresh and estuarine water bodies.
Most all of our business is repeat and referral-based from existing clients and their associates. We have been helping clients solve environmental challenges for 24 years now.
"...as a daily swimmer I wanted to share what I have seen this summer in regards to water quality. With the heat and heavy rain this summer we were primed for algae outbreaks much like previous seasons. The water this summer has been crystal clear everywhere on the pond with nothing coming from the bottom to the surface. It is the first time swimming here in almost 20 years that I have seen this kind of clarity this late in the season. The A-Pods are truly amazing and a game changer for clean water!" - Concord resident and frequent pond user.

We can rapidly assess, mitigate, improve water quality and reduce health risks posed by toxic benthic and pelagic forms of cyanobacteria (a.k.a. cyanoHABs; harmful algae blooms) and nuisance densities of algae in water bodies.
Other services and products available for assessing and improving the health and quality of soil and sediment.
Permanent and sustainable removal of benthic and pelagic forms of cyanoHABs, nuisance algae, cyanotoxins and excess nutrients from water bodies. A-Pods are fully scalable, readily portable and can be used either actively or passively (using natural water currents; without electricity or chemicals). A-Pods work well in both small and very large water bodies (fresh and estuarine). U. S Patent No. 10.745,879.
