TECHNIQUES & STRATEGIES #2: Greywater Systems and CA Code
We’re continuing where we left off before summer break with specific techniques and strategies involved in permaculture design. This month we’ll explore common greywater systems and what’s involved with California code.
Greywater -water reused from sinks, showers, and washing machines- can significantly reduce your outdoor water consumption. Greywater systems are especially important in times of drought.
Come learn about:
* common greywater systems (like laundry to landscape and branched drain systems)
* water saving potential
* 12 best practices
* design and cost considerations
* permits and regulations in California
* health and safety
* soaps and products
You’ll also see a ‘Laundry to Landscape (L2L) system “mock-up” with real greywater parts as well as get more information about our upcoming hands-on workshop, ‘Laundry to Landscape Greywater System Installation‘ happening September 27th from 10am-5pm.
CPG co-founder, Brian Ladwig-Cooper, is a certified greywater installer through Greywater Action and he’ll be available to answer your questions regarding how you can install a system in your home.
