We work within the Bay Area Counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Sonoma, Solano, San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara. We also serve as a design consultant throughout the State of California.
During California's drought conditions of 2005, we founded DIG Cooperative Inc. and built the first permitted residential constructed wetland for greywater treatment in California which is located at the Berkeley Ecology Center's EcoHouse. We continue to pioneer water conservation systems across the greater Bay Area.
Our work is driven by a commitment to protect and conserve freshwater and helping to create a water secure future for generations.
We view each site as a whole-system organism and provide a comprehensive approach to water conservation, reuse, rainwater harvesting, erosion control, flood mitigation, earthquake and emergency preparedness, fire fighting and drought tolerant design. Our design philosophy draws from the principles of Permaculture which are derived from observations of nature and indigenous traditions.
