more than 20 years of development, American Wastewater Systems, Inc.,
formerly Ace Plumbing and Sewer, Inc., has become a true leader in the wastewater
We began operations early in 1981, by installing home sewer systems and
working as master plumbers, all from the confines of our home-office-warehouse
location. In 1992 we curtailed our plumbing business and concentrated more on
the wastewater treatment industry. We bought a 5000 sq. ft. metal building on
a 250 X 260 lot and proceeded to manufacture and continue to install
home wastewater treatment plants.
Four years later, in 1996, we expanded our operations and began to manufacture
and install commercial treatment plants and lift stations. Within one years
time we had become the largest distributor of commercial plants in the state
of Louisiana, for Jet, Inc., a manufacturer of engineered wastewater treatment
American Wastewater Systems, Inc. established its corporate office location
in June 1999. We purchased a new 16.5-acre location; featuring a two-story office
complex with extensive warehouse space, an all-weather casting facility, and
over 5 acres of cargo storage area for castings. By this time, we had become
the largest Jet, Inc. commercial wastewater treatment plant distributor, not
only in Louisiana, but also in the United States.
We have designed our own Class 1 residential wastewater treatment
system called B.E.S.T. 1. With the successful testing and approval
by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), we began manufacturing and marketing
these units in May of 2000. Patent rights were secured on July 24, 2001 under
Patent No. US D 445,477 S. Our B.E.S.T. 1 was the
first ANSI/NSF Standard 40 system introduced to the Louisiana market and fully
complies with the newly required regulations being enforced as of March 1, 2001.
We also own and operate several active subdivision wastewater treatment
systems in the south Louisiana area. This adds to the impressive figure of thousands
of private and commercial units installed since our inception over 20 years
Our goal is to provide the most efficient method of attaining pollution
control beyond the sewer lines, and to make available to our customers equipment
that is time-proven, warranty backed, and available at an affordable price.
With this purpose before us, we will continue to serve our customers and work
to maintain and enjoy the privilege of being a leader in the wastewater treatment
