ABOUT US

Our Philosophy:

We believe the single most important thing a landowner can do is to keep their soil and their water on their property.  It sounds pretty simple, and even logical.  After all, it belongs to you.  For many landowners this concept may be foreign. As this web-site grows, you will find more and more information.  In the meantime, feel free to call us or email us to find out how we can assist.  Below is a primer on stormwater management.

Impervious coverage is any type of human made surface that does not absorb rainwater.  This includes roofs, driveways, roads, and patios and even lawns.  Your lawn may allow 90% of the water to run off because the soil has been compacted over the years, and non-native turf grasses have short root systems.  The end result of the impervious coverage is more water without a place to go which produces flooding during major rain events.  The second major problem with stormwater runoff is water pollution.  Stormwater picks up all sorts of contaminants including oil, bacteria, pesticides, fertilizer, and chemicals.  These may lead right back into your public water supply.  Another component to water pollution is land erosion and sedimentation.  With increased runoff stream banks can erode degrading water quality.  This directly effects the ecology of the water.  Fish and plants in the water can be harmed.  

Infiltration and The Aquifer

In Texas there are 9 major and 21 minor aquifers covering 81% of the state.  About 60% of our water usage is supplied from these aquifers.  With so much of our state relying on this water, allowing as much water as possible to infitrate is critically important to our future.

Helping you Preserve and Protect your Natural Resources

Through our two organizations,  we can help you keep your water on your property.  Whether it is through a rainwater tank or rain garden or any other of our services we can help you make a positive environmental impact while getting all the benefits nature offers!

Why the Fuss About Water Runoff?

Stormwater Runoff has definitely become a major point of emphasis in the last two decades.  The two biggest proplems are flooding and water pollution.  In a natural environment, about 90% of rainwater is either absorbed in the ground or captured and evaporates.  Only about 10% makes its way to a creek or river, eventually draining to the ocean.  With impervious coverage, we see a lot more water running into the creeks and rivers increasing pollution and causing more localized flooding.
