What is Bacteria and Why It’s Crucial
Bacteria is tiny living things that are found all around us and are too small to be seen by the naked eye. They live in water, soil, and in the air. By scientifically identifying and isolating bacteria that specialize in digesting organic material, bacteria suppliers are able to provide extremely high concentrations of beneficial bacteria that utilize organic material as fuel and rapidly assimilate that food source. Under the correct conditions, utilizing bacteria for wastewater (bioaugmentation) can reduce the target material in hours or days, rather than in months or years.

Industries Using Bacteria
Proven Results of Wastewater Microbes
City of Escalon
The municipal treatment plant at the City of Escalon treats 1.2 million gallons per day of high-strength wastewater. The plant experienced odor issues that they wanted to improve.
This 900-acre manmade lake in Michigan had the goal of reducing organic waste, starving unwanted vegetation and increasing lake depth to avoid the expense of dredging.
