February Workshop

Installing Laundry to Landscape Greywater System
Saturday, February 27 | 10am to 3pm | Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Instructor: Rishi Kumar
Every day, thousands of gallons of clean or lightly used water is sent down to the sewer. This “greywater” can easily and cheaply be directed out into our gardens to water fruit trees and flowering plants. In this workshop, we will design and install a simple laundry-to- landscape greywater system at a suburban home, which requires no permit and about $100 in parts. An easy sustainable conversion all homeowners should have.
Topics covered: greywater, laundry to landscape, sustainable home design, water conservation.
