Rainwater Harvesting

Storm Water Management

An Asset, Not a Nuisance

storm water management

Rain water is one of the purest cleanest sources of water there is. It is perfectly usable and drinkable until it becomes contaminated as it travels through our matrix of steel and concrete.

What if this water was returned to the ground table right where it falls? On-site water management allows us to replenish our dwindling aquifers. In fact, SARG’s approach is similar to the natural processes at work within aquifers. In nature, water soaks into the earth and travels downward until being contained by bedrock in void spaces underground. We emulate this concept and create artificial aquifers that collect and filter water from our rooftops and roads. This clean water can be returned to the ground table (via infiltration) or it can be stored and pumped out for landscape irrigation and other non-potable uses.

Infiltration Reservoir

Our modular cisterns, when used without a liner, become sub surface infiltration reservoirs. This system channels storm water from any non permeable surface into a load-bearing underground cistern which then allows the water to slowly soak back into the ground. Cisterns can be made into the shape and depth that best suits the grade and water table in your area. Their load bearing capabilities makes them ideal for hiding infiltration and retention ponds underneath parks, playgrounds, sports fields, and parking lots.
