WET EXPANDS INTO WYOMING WITH ACQUISITION OF ATC & EDE
Prior to 2022, Water & Environmental Technologies, Inc (WET) had opened offices throughout Montana including Butte (headquarters), Bozeman, Anaconda, Great Falls, and Kalispell; however, we had yet to open a base of operations outside of Montana’s boarders. That all changed as we welcomed the year 2022.
In 2021, WET initiated talks about acquiring Aqua Terra Consulting (ATC), a company based in Sheridan, Wyoming. ATC offered a wide range of services, such as water rights management, mineral and surface estate analysis and reporting, contaminant hydrology expertise, as well as due diligence and compliance services. ATC was founded to provide mine planning, land management, and geological consulting services with a strong focus on honesty and integrity. They are dedicated to building real and trustworthy relationships with their clients by offering high-quality, professional consulting services at fair prices. Their long-standing success in different economic situations reflects the expertise that they bring to WET, and their enduring client relationships demonstrate their commitment to delivering excellent service.
Starting on January 1, 2022, ATC rebranded as WET and, while retaining its previous service offerings, now benefits from the additional support and resources of the WET team. Notably, with the merger of ATC, WET was able to introduce mineral/surface estate research and reporting services for the very first time in the company’s history.
Thanks to ATC’s established achievements and networks, along with WET’s substantial capabilities, this office became capable of handling an increased number of projects and larger volumes of work. The senior consultants brought over a century of experience in these disciplines that span the United States to WET. Shortly after the acquisition of ATC, WET expanded its workforce in the Sheridan office by bringing in additional professionals to assist in managing the growing workload!
ATC brought with the following expertise areas:
In September 2023, our Sheridan office experienced further growth through the acquisition of Environmental Design Engineering (EDE), a small Sheridan-based firm established in 1985. EDE specializes in geosciences, engineering, and environmental permitting, aligning perfectly with WET’s expertise. We are thrilled to welcome the new team members and their valued clients.
The addition of EDE Consultants enhances WET’s capabilities, bringing in technical expertise to navigate projects from concept to design, regulatory approval, construction, operation, and reclamation. Their team excels in assessing and managing water resources, environmental engineering, mine water remediation, and environmental permitting and compliance. Moreover, they have a wide-reaching network of highly qualified professionals across various fields who can provide support when needed. EDE also introduces a prestigious list of clienteles, including major global mining corporations among various other industries. This acquisition opens doors to clients we have not previously had the opportunity to serve, broadening and diversifying our portfolio within the mining industry. It represents a significant milestone for WET, as it allows us to attract top-tier talent and expand our marketing reach throughout the Mountain West states!
