As Phoslock Environmental Technologies continues to steadily expand its’ projects across the globe with the backing of solid, proven scientific results of our product, we aim to become a ‘go to’ choice for water authorities and lake & reservoir managers who seek to combat this ever increasing issue of lake eutrophication.
