Water Conservation

Water Conservation

Do you or your organization want a Water Conservation Upgrade? We specialize in creating drought tolerant buildings and landscapes. You can choose from several packages to start you off saving water and money while meeting your budget. Packages can include a water conservation retrofit, water-smart irrigation retrofit, and more.

Rainwater Catchment

Rainwater Catchment

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

Greywater Systems

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.

Constructed Wetlands

Constructed Wetlands

Constructed wetlands offer many opportunities for habitat restoration, food, rainwater infiltration, building materials and bio-fuels production. Wetlands treat greywater (wash water), blackwater (sewage) and stormwater and can be designed to fit your landscape as a lush, evergreen feature. These natural filters screen out pollutants in residential, commercial and public waste water before it enters the local ground water table, creek, river, pond, or estuary.

Flooding + Erosion Control

Flooding and erosion control

Stormwater runoff presents both growing challenges and opportunities for Bay Area residents. Many flooding and structural damage issues can be addressed by diverting surface and ground water away from your development. DIG Cooperative Inc. will help you control and harvest storm water for irrigation supply and indoor domestic use, or drain it to a rain garden and biologically filter it before it leaves your site.

Green Building

Planning a Remodel or New Construction Project? DIG Cooperative Inc. can help you see your project from planning to production. We work as a general contractor or as a sub-contractor within our specialty. We collaborate with engineers, architects and contractors to design, permit and construct your project. We also work with Homeowner Builders and can provide you with do-it-yourself plans and manuals.

Regenerative Landscaping

Regenerative Landscaping

We use a comprehensive permaculture design process to integrate food, medicine and many other useful plants into your landscape. Obtain a harvest of fiber, fuel and building materials with a minimal amount of maintenance! We work with you to design urban orchards, mushroom gardens, raised beds, medicinal gardens and much more as a natural extension of your home or facility.

Bio-Remediation

Bio-Remediation

Do you live with polluted soil and want a garden? Looking for a green alternative to the conventional, chemical-based waste management and systems? Bio-remediation uses micro-organisms to accumulate, break down, remove and/or render toxins harmless. When used in conjunction with a succession of strategies including mycelia innoculation and selective crop plantings, a site can be restored to safe food production.
