Hands-on Greywater Workshop (Arcata)

22nd July 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:30 pm


The Salmonid Restoration Federation with the support of the Watershed Fund is excited to announce a Greywater Workshop, including example installation with greywater guru, Laura Allen, from 11 am to 3 pm on July 22 in Bayside. This event will include presentations on the benefits and nuts and bolts of greywater installation, an overview of California’s plumbing code pertinent to greywater applications, and Humboldt County’s greywater policy. The event will also include a demonstration project where participants have a hands-on opportunity to learn about the design elements, plumbing requirements, layout, and actually install a greywater system.

The event will also include a book signing of Laura Allen’s new book Greywater, Green Landscape. Laura Allen is one of the founders of Greywater Action — a collaborative of educators who teach residents and tradespeople about affordable and simple household water systems that dramatically reduce water use and foster sustainable cultures of water. Through hands-on workshops and presentations, they have educated thousands of people about greywater system design and construction and they have an excellent track record of working with policymakers and water districts to develop codes and incentives for greywater, rainwater harvesting, and composting toilets. Greywater Action and SRF believe strongly that decentralized conservation measures can play a critical role in drought resilience, climate adaptation, and the return of healthy stream ecosystems.

Registration for the Greywater Workshop is $20, please click here to register online.

After registration, you will be sent a logistical email with the exact location of the workshop.
