Our work not is not limited to Germany (our homebase), and is equally relevant the world over: we have international experience as far abroad as Southeast Asia.

We offer professional advice and provide scientific services within the following areas:

Though our primary clientele are those responsible for the provision and distribution of the public water supply, our services are often required by organisations for nature conservation, public authorities and environmental planning agencies, and educational establishments.
We are also, of course, pleased to serve the needs and requirements of private clients.
