Greywater Design and Build

Every day millions of gallons of perfectly good water are drained down our sinks into municipal sewage treatment plants and then out to the ocean. Why spend all that effort and money to clean up water that’s not that dirty? Greywater is post-use water from household sinks, showers, dishwashers, and washing machines which is perfectly good for outdoor use as irrigation water.

In this workshop we will design and build a constructed wetland greywater system to recycle kitchen sink water at The Growing Home. Wetlands and bogs are natural filtration systems which clean and oxygenate water. Using this natural technology, we will clean water from a kitchen sink drain through a 7-stage mechanical and biological filtering system, and then direct the water into the garden and pond.

    This looks like a really good event. I hope I can attend the next one. Would love to know how many gallons can be recycled in an average home.
