Greywater 101

Virtual Program w. Nina Gordon-Kirsch

The water that currently exists on Earth is all the water that ever was and ever will be.  Less than 3% of this water is drinkable freshwater.  On average, every person in California sends 85 gallons of water down the drain every day. Greywater systems are one way to make the most out of this precious resource, by returning water back to the ground, rather than flushing it away to the sea.
