Rainwater Harvesting & Water Systems

We consult on water systems from well water, surface water and rainwater harvesting.  Our area of specialty is ensuring your water source meets and maintains potable water quality.

Why Rainwater?  

  • poor well quality and quantity?
  • present potable water source too dirty and costly to clean?
  • Emergency water storage for disasters or fire suppression?
  • to decrease storm water flow into city storm drains and sewers?
  • provide irrigate for food crops when water restrictions disallows such?
