Hands-on Laundry to Landscape Greywater Workshop (Walnut Creek)

13th May 2017 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


ReUse Water with Graywater!

Learn how to convert your own washing machine into a water-saving laundry-to-landscape graywater system. This system is low in cost, doesn’t require a permit, and is great for irrigating trees, bushes, and other perennial plants.

In this hands-on workshop sponsored by EBMUD and led by Greywater Action, you’ll learn about and participate in the construction and installation of a real laundry-to-landscape graywater system. No prior experience is required. You will gain the knowledge and experience to plan and install your own graywater system.

The workshop will cover:
• Graywater principles
• Best plants to water with graywater
• Common 
pitfalls and how to avoid them
• Steps, materials, and installation for a simple graywater system from the washing machine

Installation site is a residence located in Walnut Creek, CA. Address provided after registration. Rain or shine, barring severe storms.

This class is part of a graywater educational event series taking place in various East Bay communities in 2017. This series is a collaboration between EBMUD, Ecology Center, Greywater Action, Sustainable Contra Costa, Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation, and Friends of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center.

Space is limited to 20 participants.
