Patriot Capital Announces Investment in Clean Water Environmental Services


Patriot Capital, a multi-strategy middle market investment firm, is pleased to announce a new investment to support an add-on acquisition for Clean Water Environmental Services (“CWES”), an existing portfolio company of Rockwood Equity Partners.

Headquartered in Parker, CO, CWES is a platform holding company for providers of erosion control and storm water management services. CWES provides erosion and sediment control, stormwater management and remediation, land reclamation, pollution prevention, water quality and detention systems, consulting services (SWMP, SWPPPs, permitting, training, engineering, audits, compliance support), as well as installing and providing products such as silt fences, straw mats, hydroseed and wattles, and more for residential, commercial, and municipal land developers.

Patriot Capital provided debt to support the add-on acquisition of WBE Environmental, Inc. dba Florida Silt Fencing for the platform.

Florida Silt Fencing is renowned for its specialized installation of silt fences and other erosion control measures across Florida and surrounding states. The company focuses heavily on infrastructure projects, which aligns with CWES’ focus on diversifying its erosion control and storm water management services across end markets, customers, and geographies.
