Reservoir Development & Expansion reservoir2Reservoir Development & Expansion

Water Storage is a major obstacle for most vineyard developments. Due to increased state & county involvement, permitting for water storage has become increasingly difficult. DVC group has experience in off stream and on stream reservoir permitting through the state and local agencies. Reservoirs & other water storage means are often one of the largest expenses when developing vineyards. The DVC group provides engineering services to help properly size reservoirs as well as assist contractors in developing the most cost effective construction approach.

Vineyard DevelopmentVineyard Development

DVC group is a valuable resource for vineyard development projects, weather embarking on a new vineyard development project or replanting an existing vineyard. Farmers have, for the most part, been very aware of the need to protect soil against erosion for the health of their crops, but current regulatory guidelines have enforced requirements to reduce erosion and control sediment from entering our waterways.

DVC group works with the Agricultural Commissioner’s office as well as the Sonoma County Permit and Resource Management Department to provide a seamless permitting process as well as a cost effective plan for the vineyard owner. The DVC group will work closely with the viticulturalist to assist in determining plantable acreage, vinerow direction, material counts, and development costs.
