Re​u​se 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 Berkeley, CA. Address provided upon registration. Lunch is provided for this workshop.​ Workshop runs rain or shine, although heavy rain will cancel. ​Space is limited to 20 participants. 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, the Ecology Center, and Greywater Action.
