Water can be used multiple times before it is released into the environment. While contained water can be treated by service ecosystems. A Service Ecosystem has all the components of a natural ecosystem – soil, water, plants, microbes – but is designed to provide a service to humans, such as treating wastewater so that it can be recycled. A good system saves energy, recycles water, recycles nutrients, and reduces contaminants.

Greywater – We design and build greywater systems that are easy to permit, recycle tens of thousands of gallons annually, and are cost-competitive with drip irrigation systems. Reduce your water and sewage bill.

Septic and Small Development – Interested in efficient septic systems or small wastewater recycling water-treatment plants? These can be effective in difficult environments such as sandy soils, high groundwater, or clay. Many ecologically efficient systems are now approved for use.

Purple Pipes – Water from the wastewater treatment plant can be recycled in agriculture through purple pipe projects.
