USFilter announces the formation of the Environmental Services Group. The new group is part of the USFilter's services and products division and brings together the leading brands for media and services in ground water, air and process water treatment. These brands include Westates Carbon, Recovery Services, USFilter Perchlorate Remediation and Midas OCM.

Headed by Brent Hillier, vice president and general manager, this new team will be responsible for helping customers remove organic and inorganic contaminants from ground water and wastewater. It also will be supplying and servicing odor-control systems through the company's more than 85 service branches in North America. Environmental Services can supply media, tanks and services to remove organic contaminants such as Chlorinated Solvents, TCE, PCE, MTBE and inorganic contaminants such as chrome, perchlorate and arsenic.

The group will be headquartered out of the company's Roseville, Minn., facility.
