Our three proprietary methodologies for creating water abundance are FreshWater Works©, MixedWater Works© & SaltWater Works©

FreshWater Works©


grow clean water onsite

Remove contaminants from stormwater, runoff and/or wastewater, for use in irrigation, toilets, air conditioners and even drinking. Unlike mechanical treatment processes, our systems are organic, dynamic, self-organizing, and resilient, so they can adapt to changing effluent quality better than mechanical/chemical systems.

Fresh Water

Pipe stormwater, gray water and/or wastewater into a decentralized water remediation system, adapted to meet local health & water quality standards.

Effluent moves through aerated treatment biota. The system exploits sunlight, oxygen, bacteria, algae, plants, snails & fish that work symbiotically to purify the water. Aeration & mixing in the tanks keeps nutrients in suspension.

Effluent flows to a lined marsh, where valuable accumulated nutrients grow landscape, food or other economically productive biomass, avoiding the environmental & economic inefficiency of conventional, centralized water treatment. Enhanced degradation results in fewer solids than conventional systems.

Residual nutrients are exported as infrequently as once or twice a year, potentially for financial gain. Water, treated to a tertiary level or better, leaves the marsh for storage.

Solar-powered or bio-fuel pumps transport the resultant clean water, entirely safe for reuse in Irrigation, interior uses like toilets, planters,
air cond
itioning, & groundwater recharge.

seawater-irrigated landscape without desal

At near-shore sites, untreated seawater achieves ornamental landscape and biofuel production, leaving fresh water supplies for drinking. This methodology greens otherwise non-arable land. Its lush vegetation reduces dissolved solids and contaminants, as it captures atmospheric carbon and deposits it in the soil.

saltGraphicSolar, wind or biofuel-operated pumps convey salt water from onshore wells, ocean, bay, estuary, or other saline sources onto land. On shore, salt water moves into a series of ponds, fields or landscapes. Cultivating aquatic species makes the water nutrient-rich.

The nutrient-rich effluent then moves into production wetlands that hold halophytes (which grow in saltwater) and glycophytes (which grow in brackish water).

Salt water irigates species with commercial value such as:

  • Exquisite seawater-loving ornamental plants, some with stunning flowers
  • Delicious and nutritious food crops
  • High oil-seed biofuel crops
  • A regenerating wetland-mitigation sites

This process helps clean seawater and sediment of contaminants, before returning it to groundwater or the source.

greenscape without imported freshwater

At near-shore sites, mix pure, untreated seawater with treated wastewater, stormwater and runoff, to expand and fertilize landscape, without relying on imported potable water for irrigation. This broadens the plant palette for ornamental vegetation and can grow landscape, food or other economically productive biomass.

The approach mixes three water sources:

  • Wastewater and stormwater, treated to tertiary standards
  • Seawater from ocean, on-shore wells or another saline water body.

This results in brackish water, an ideal medium for “glycophytes,” plants that thrive in lightly saline conditions.
