Greywater Design Workshop (Hands-on) – Oakland–WAIT LIST

This event has passed.

Save water with greywater. Reusing water from your washing machine is an easy, legal, and affordable way to reduce landscape irrigation needs. A “laundry to landscape” greywater system does not require a permit (if basic guidelines are followed) and can be installed by a handy-person in a day.

Learn how to design and construct laundry to landscape greywater system in this hands-on design workshop. This workshop will take you through the design process, introduce you to all the materials needed, and teach you how to put them together. You’ll construct a mock-up system as well as plan out your own home system.

At the end of the class you’ll have a materials list and design to irrigate a portion of your landscape from your washing machine greywater.

In addition, you’ll tour a gravity, branched drain greywater system installed near-by.

Bring: Photographs of your laundry room and landscape.
