"Throughout the project, the team at HAB Aquatics was responsive and professional. The team's knowledge and experience working with harmful algal blooms were apparent in every interaction I had with them. What I appreciated as a project manager is that no question or request was too small for the team to call, email or facilitate a conversation with the public, Regional Board grant manager or other partner agencies. I would gladly work with them again to solve complex algal bloom and nutrient loading issues in the City's lake and watershed."
Jackie M, City of Watsonville, CA
"The alum project on Bald Eagle has provided wonderful results. Previously, the smell and pea soup conditions in late July and August had us considering moving. Now we can see the lake bottom at the end of our dock and our granddaughters love swimming in the lake all Summer long. Thanks!"
Mike B, Resident of Bald Eagle Lake
