Rainwater harvesting


Water Harvesting

The incorporation of rain water collection and distribution as part of a responsible landscape design can help ease the burden on municipal and regional water resources. Since rainwater harvesting systems are not connected to municipal water supplies, it's likely that monthly utility bills will decrease substantially. We specialize in the design and construction of complete rainwater harvesting packages. The steps  we take to implement  a program include:

  • Conceptual Development—Our engineers will work with your team to develop a rainwater collection strategy that meets your overall site water objectives. We will identify state and local health codes that may be applicable to the anticipated usage of the rainwater.
  • Design Development—After a concept has been approved, we will develop a complete plan for implementation. The rainwater use will be designated upon a thorough site conditions analysis. In addition, a complete set of construction documents will be prepared to include full size plans, specifications, submittals.
  • Installation and Maintenance—We provide turn key installation services to include all of the above plus installation of cisterns, plumbing, electrical, pumps, training services, and seasonal maintenance.
