California is still in a drought – Save Water with Greywater!

Learn how to divert greywater from a washing machine to irrigate the landscape with a laundry to landscape (L2L) greywater system. L2L greywater systems are simple, affordable, and easy to maintain. This workshop is taught by a certified greywater installer and will give you the necessary skills to install your own L2L system to irrigate your landscape each time you do laundry; saving you water, resources, and money.

This workshop will cover:

  • Basic overview of L2L greywater, legality in Butte County, and 12 guidelines
  • How to install a simple greywater system from a washing machine -including how to source greywater parts
  • How to prepare your landscape to receive greywater and the best choice in plants
  • Common pitfalls and how to avoid them

This is a Hands On Workshop. Participants will participate in the construction of a real L2L greywater system – start to finish. All participants will receive handouts and informational resources for use at home.
