At AquaNova, LLC, we focus on urban water designs that protect and restore water bodies and landscapes by imitating a more natural and sustainable state. We believe that sustainable urban systems should be powered with renewable sources of energy, achieve the smallest possible ecological and water footprint, and emit the lowest quantity of pollution possible, including green house gasses (GHGs) related to global climatic change.

With over 50 plus years of experience we are uniquely qualified to assist government agencies, landscape architects, developers, stakeholders and large consultancies on how to best develop sustainable urban and regional multiuse water management systems. This includes balancing social, economic and environmental factors in order to achieve harmony between people, ecology and available resources.
