As a division of EnviroScience, Inc., ES-Divers has its roots in environmental service projects. Participation in these types of projects has allowed us to bring together a team of divers with a wide range of backgrounds in Construction, Engineering, and Biology. Our diverse personnel coupled with our state-of-the-art equipment and sterling safety record has led us to be one of the foremost environmental diving companies.
ES-Divers was responsible for the design, onsite construction, and underwater installation of species specific fish habitat structures. The structures where engineered in-house and built using ecofriendly locally sourced materials. Our ability to facilitate large scale projects such as this completely in-house enables us to offer our clients a quicker turnaround time as well as greater cost effectiveness and quality guarantee.
University of Michigan
ES-Divers was tasked with inspections of existing man made aquatic habitat reefs and location of additional sites suitable for future construction. We provided the University with written analysis of substraight conditions, real time HD video of the diving inspections as well as site specific photos and physical samples.
Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)
Hunters Station, Pennsylvania
ES-Divers spearheaded the nation’s largest fresh water mussel survey and monitoring project. Our team worked with PennDOT and other agencies to lay out the underwater grid work and salvage area for the Hunters Station bridge to be taken down and rebuilt. This project spanned multiple years and hundreds of thousands of fresh water mussels where located, identified, tagged, and relocated.
Cuyahoga River Conservancy
ES-Divers provided installation service for hundreds of fish habitat structures along the Cuyahoga River in downtown Cleveland. We were able to use our own equipment and our teams’ background in construction to speed the installation process, and stay within the clients schedule and budget.
Massman Construction Co.
Little Rock, Arkansas
ES-Divers inspected several barges for the presence of zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) at an active construction site for Massman Construction in the Arkansas River in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Arkansas River is known to be infested with zebra mussels and serves as an infestation pathway of waterbodies in Oklahoma and Texas. Thus the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department requires all equipment stationed in the Arkansas River be inspected and de-contaminated prior to deployment in waterbodies where zebra mussels have not been observed. ES-Divers collected mussel samples from multiple locations and promptly submitted a final report of findings.
