Aquatic Services was formed as a DBA by S. Darrell Commander on July 20, 1979, during his second year of graduate study in Aquatic Biology at Lamar University.  The small business venture was developed primarily to fill a need for environmental consulting services in East and Southeast Texas.  During the 1980s, the business expanded into environmental testing and drilling as equipment was added to construct groundwater monitoring wells.  By 1988, however, over half of the company's income was being generated from activities involving control systems and instrumentation for water and wastewater treatment works, which remains the company's focus to this day.


Mr. Commander possesses a unique set of skills and qualifications, including a B.S. and M.S. in Aquatic Biology,  Class A Water and Wastewater Operator's Certificates, and has held licenses or certifications in the following categories: Professional Sanitarian, Texas Water Well Driller/Pump Installer, Licensed Irrigator, and Registered Medical Technologist (ASCP.) In addition, Mr. Commander has amassed extensive industry experience in process instrumentation through employment at such companies as Kellogg Brown & Root and Rosemount.  Mr. Commander also spent many years working for the Texas Water Quality Board (the predecessor to the TCEQ) as a field investigator, monitoring water quality and inspecting treatment facilities.


It is these unique skills that make Aquatic Services such a versatile water technology company, providing a full range of services to small- and medium-sized municipal and industrial treatment plants.


Today, Aquatic Services fills a very unique role in its services to municipalities, water districts, and small industries throughout East Texas.  Aquatic Services has grown in both its capabilities and the scope of its operations since its humble beginnings, but it has always maintained its commitment to provide clients with uncompromising workmanship at the most reasonable cost possible.
