Wastewater solutions, training, and consulting programs for everyone
EBS is an independent wastewater treatment consulting company that provides unique solutions to various operational and training challenges facing industrial wastewater professionals. We are inspired to be trusted advisors to our clients and Channel Partners, offering an alternative to traditional consultants and suppliers in the form of unique technical insights and perspectives, thereby helping them protect North America’s natural resources while supporting their financial goals and long-term sustainability.
Assessing risk and managing critical factors are necessities for managers, engineers, and operators of wastewater treatment plants.
