WHO WE ARE
H2O Environmental, Inc., is a full-service, hazardous materials firm providing our customers with superior responses to emergency situations, management of hazardous materials for ongoing operations, industrial cleaning and training. We are big enough to provide the full complement of expertise and equipment to deal with any situation yet small enough to consistently outperform our competitors in response time and efficiency.

H2O Environmental was founded by John Bradley in 1996. A veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps, John initially saw a growing need for a statewide environmental services company providing a full range of services for the state of Nevada. The company quickly expanded to two operational bases – Las Vegas and Reno – in our first few years of operation. After over a decade of developing and refining our operational practices to provide a complete range of services to our customers, we began opening new operational bases in 2007 with the strategy to cover the geographic area in the heart of the Western United States that now comprises our service territory.
