About the Owner

Steve Breland from American Waterworks

Owner Steve Breland

Steve Breland co-founded Breland Basements in 1989. After 8 years in the business, Steve decided to start his own by opening American Waterworks.

Growing up on a farm in South Dakota, Steve learned at a very young age what it takes to be successful. Over the years, Steve has designed thousands of basement waterproofing and foundation repair solutions for our neighbors in Southern MN, North Dakota, Northeast IA & Western WI.

While American Waterworks has experienced great success, Steve knows that this would never have been possible without those we serve.
