Building and Using a Laundry Greywater System for Irrigating your Yard

  • Oct 12, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • a private residence

Legislation recently passed to allow greywater reuse in Colorado.

A Front Range family of four could on average harvest between 5,000-12,000 gallons of greywater per growing season from their laundry to irrigate plants in their yard!

This class is an accessible introduction for anyone who is interested in using laundry greywater to irrigate the home landscape. The class will cover all the basics of greywater management. Class includes a tour of a simple laundry greywater system, instructional handouts, a resource list and sample of biocompatible detergent. 

Topics covered: What is greywater? What is not greywater? Why use greywater? Any health concerns? Best management practices. The status of greywater use in Colorado. The cost, advantages, set-up, tools necessary and maintenance of the Laundry Drum system. And why a drum is necessary for this type of system.        

Judith will email participants her exact address privately a couple days before class. Registration is limited to 12 participants. Suggested donation is $5-$10 if you can afford it, if not no worries.
