Best Environmental Subsurface Sampling Technologies, Inc. (BESST)
BESST is passionate about our mission to design, develop, build and commercialize forensic, technically minded, subsurface-based product and service technologies for solving vadose zone, groundwater quality and quantity problems. Although, we can solve many shallow subsurface problems for our customers, we also provide deep groundwater exploration and monitoring solutions as well (in excess of 3,000 ft. bgs). Although we provide a standard array of products and services, we are keen on developing customized technologies and systems as well because not every problem can be solved using a “cookie-cutter” approach. Our team of geoscientists and engineers at BESST listen to the unique nature of each problem defined by our clients and then provide scientifically focused solutions.

Our Mission Statement
BESST’s mission is to achieve superior solutions to groundwater quality problems at the lowest cost by using highly innovative and efficient technology. Our select group of geoscientists and engineers help interpret and design solutions to best serve the clients’ needs.
In 2002, BESST was introduced to the Flow Tracer and Depth Dependent Groundwater Sampler technology by the primary inventor Dr. John Izbicki from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). In 2004, BESST signed an exclusive licensing agreement with the USGS and since this time has profiled over 600 municipal production wells in California and other western states.
BESST, Inc. has emerged as a key player in the groundwater market by providing significant and dramatic cost saving options to communities through avoiding and reducing well head treatment, blending facilities, pipelines, and reducing the need for new wells. BESST has been focused on its customer’s satisfaction and has developed a turn-key service which combines in-house advanced technologies with sound consulting.
Since 1999, BESST has supplied high-quality products and services to many companies and government agencies.
