Village Ecosystems is a women-owned hydrology and engineering contracting firm that designs, builds, manages, and permits watershed and water conservation projects that save water & energy, reduce climate change, and create habitat.

We provide holistic watershed services with synergistic benefits. We have the STEM to do hydrologic research, analysis, and design; we build the water features that we design, and our ecological expertise integrates life into our structures. We understand that human behavior plays the largest role in the success of a project and the planet.

We do water conservation and ecosystem design and construction to meet climate goals while improving ecosystem health.

Our watershed projects lean on traditional hydrologic and ecological analysis, with a focus on deeply restorative bioengineering techniques using native materials.

We use science, technology, & engineering combined with a strong set of construction skills, to build sustainable environments.

Our Work

Village Ecosystems provides hydrology & eco-engineering services for a sustainable future. We focus on human interaction with the landscape and wildlands – how infrastructure can be minimally invasive and how people can build systems that have synergistic benefits with regard to energy, water, nutrients, and nature. We also do boring things, like writing reports and applying for your permits. Everybody has to sometimes.

Our diverse work with Water includes environmental policy and social systems, engineering designs for roads, streams, greywater, rainwater, and watershed analysis.

Our approach to land use planning is based on hydrologic connectivity, conservation, and pollution prevention.

We use Science, nature, and ingenuity to build sustainable ecosystems both in the wild and integrated with the human infrastructure. The relationships that each person has with water, soil, energy, and nutrients are part of an intricate web of life & death – we help create healthy connections between your work and the natural world.
