About Us

Water is rapidly becoming our most precious resource, and California Filtration Specialists, LLC. was founded to assist builders, municipalities, and individuals in protecting this resource.

California Filtration Specialists was founded by Whitson Contracting & Management, Inc. in 2015, when its staff discovered the need for cost-effective, space-saving ways to meet the ever-changing requirements in the stormwater industry. Our products provide solutions to project requirements and design problems related to filtration, infiltration, biofiltration and rain water harvesting.
