Hands On Workshop: Graywater Installation (Oakland Location)

Sunday | October 21, 2018 | 10:00 am — 3:00 pm

Oakland | Oakland, CA

ReUse 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, does not 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 will 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 Oakland or San Leandro, CA. Address provided after registration. Rain or shine, barring severe storms.
