At Herschell Environmental, we believe in the benefit that new processes and technologies offer to water and wastewater treatment system owners and operators and the critical value of sound engineering practices. We are committed to ethical business practices and exceeding customer expectations. It was on this foundation that the firm was founded in 2003 by Judith Herschell, owner and President. We work hard to further the vision of bringing products and services to water and wastewater facilities in North America.
