Top 100 Private Company in Baton Rouge, Compliance EnviroSystems, Celebrates 25 Years

One of the First Sewer System Evaluation Survey (SSES) Companies in the U.S. Continues to Grow and Provide Services to Municipalities, Utility Contractors, Engineering Firms, and Others

Baton Rouge, LA – January 17, 2020, marks the 25th anniversary for Compliance EnviroSystems, LLC (CES), one of the nation’s leading professional underground infrastructure evaluation companies.

In 1995, following an influx of federal grant money designated for small-town underground system assessments, CES was founded to provide much-needed sanitary sewer system evaluation surveys in Louisiana. Today, consent decrees continue to drive much of CES’s work, allowing for local growth and expansion across the Southeast United States.

Notably, in the early 2000s, CES was selected to evaluate all of South-Atlanta’s sewer systems; and fifteen years following the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the company continues to play a key role in the clean-up of New Orleans’ storm drains and sanitary sewer infrastructure.

CES has grown at a strong and steady pace, with services now including SSES, disaster recovery, cross bore locating, and large diameter sewer and storm drain cleaning. What sets CES apart is the ability to utilize off-road and specialty equipment to access hard-to-reach areas.

Reflecting on 25 years of successful innovation, CES President Brad Dutruch says, “This growth did not happen overnight. I learned early on that to strategically expand a business, you need to make sure you never outgrow the people you hire to manage the work. Integrity in the work we do means we need the best people and the necessary equipment to get every job done right. We hire strong people and provide opportunities for them to reach their personal goals while bringing the vision of CES to reality.”

About Compliance EnviroSystems (CES)

Since 1995, CES has exceeded industry standards, setting the bar for sanitary sewer and storm drain evaluation services across the Southeast United States. These services sometimes referred to as pre-construction analysis, are the foundation of all sewer rehabilitation programs. CES divides its services into two separate but equal functions: the efficient collection of wastewater collection system field data and the management of all information, resulting in high-quality deliverables and customized reports. Headquartered in Baton Rouge, CES employs more than 160 dedicated employees.
