Environmental Canine Services is a six-year-old Michigan company that uses dogs to find pollution in water.

It’s said that no location in Michigan is more than a few miles from a lake, pond, river or stream. That makes the safe and responsible disposal of waste water of primary concern to all of us. One Michigan-based company has introduced a new way to detect and source illicit discharges in storm and drain systems.
