Greywater 101 (free presentation) Berkeley

2nd March 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The rain is a welcome respite this winter, but California remains a drought-prone state. Greywater is a low-cost, simple way to make your home resilient in our changing climate. The water that flows from your sinks, shower, and washing machine can be diverted to irrigate your yard. Come learn about common and popular greywater systems and how to choose a system that is a good match for your home and landscape.

This class will cover:

* Overview of water supply system
* Common types of systems and parts needed
* Plant-friendly soaps and products
* General costs & water-saving potential
* Ways to reuse greywater (covers plumbing code)
* Design considerations
* Greywater resources

This greywater event series is a collaboration between EBMUD, Ecology Center, and Greywater Action. Class attendees may wish to participate in a hands-on residential greywater installation, scheduled 3/18/17.
