Reliance Environmental, Inc.
"Just wanted to provide a quick note on Frank Guld and our survey last week in Garden City. I was very pleased with Frank's work and his professionalism. New information came to light following his survey which confirmed a location for a tank he identified which initially appeared questionable (by its location from the building). Nice job."
