Hydrology, Ecology, & Watershed Design & Construction

Fixing the Water-Energy-Nutrient problem on-site also addresses global crises like Climate Change and Water Scarcity. Design or restructure your buildings to have big effects on your security as well as the global climate situation!

  • Natural Swimming Pools
  • Micro-Hydro Power
  • Bio Char Photovoltaics
  • Aquaponics
  • Living Machines

Energy and Water are inextricably linked. Our water usage consumes large amounts of energy in pumping and treatment about 15% to 20% in California. Our energy usage consumes large amounts of water to cool power plants, about one third of U.S. freshwater.

Nutrients are the third part of the equation - Power plants don't only waste freshwater, they contaminate freshwater with nitrogen, resulting in acid rain and algal blooms. Nitrogen fertilizer is made out of natural gas instead of manure. Manure and Sewage contaminate more water and are expensive to treat.

Village Ecosystems

We have the STEM to do hydrologic research, analysis and design. Our Engineering contractor’s license allows us to build the water features that we design. Our ecological expertise integrates life into our structures. We understand that human behavior plays the largest role in the success of a project. VE provides wholistic watershed services with synergistic benefits.
