With proper filtration and sterilization, rainwater can supply a home or development with potable quality water throughout the year. Just an inch of rainfall captured on 1000 sq. ft. of roof area can provide up to 600 gallons of water. Urban populations are expected to double in the next two decades as fresh water resources diminish. DIG Cooperative is committed to providing proactive strategies for ecological regeneration through water.
Greywater systems are a smart way to re-use shower, bathroom sink, wash basin and laundry water by re-rerouting your home's plumbing to irrigate your landscape. An average home can produce over 30,000 gallons of greywater a year. Many systems are available to match your budget, from the most simple laundry-to-landscape system to extensive recycling systems which treat and supply filtered greywater to flush toilets.
According to the US Environmental Projection Agency, LID is an approach to land development (or re-development) that works with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible. LID employs principles such as preserving and recreating natural landscape features, minimizing effective imperviousness to create functional and appealing site drainage that treat stormwater as a resource rather than a waste product.
