Create Your Own Water-Wise Home and Landscape
Presentation by Laura Allen, author of the Water Wise Home

Water Wise Home Diagram

With simple plumbing alterations and smart landscape changes, every home has the potential to create a sustainable water supply with an ecologically productive landscape. From reusing greywater, to collecting rainwater, to installing waterless composting toilets, our collective efforts can transform our home water systems. A recent study found that households saved an average of 15,000 gallons a year after merely installing greywater system. Learn how you can transform your own home so it conserves and reuses our precious water resources, while growing a bountiful garden. This presentation will teach you how. It will also include national trends, codes and regulations, costs, health and safety considerations, and system examples.
