Branched Drain Greywater Workshop
May 7, 2016
9am-4pm

Interested in learning how to install your own greywater irrigation system? We will be teaching a greywater class and hands-on workshop where you will learn all about greywater and then participate in installing a greywater system. Note that this workshop is specifically about the
"Branched Drain" greywater irrigation system. These systems are a little more elaborate than Laundry-to-Landscape system (our usual workshop format), and require reconfiguring the waste plumbing in your crawl space. Branched drains are low-tech gravity-flow systems that recapture water from bathtubs, showers, bathroom sinks and washing machines. More info about these systems HERE.

Topics covered:
++Greywater basics
++ Overview of different greywater systems
++ Benefits and drawbacks of greywater reuse
++ Building code and legal issues
++ Soil considerations and plant health
++Branched Drain systems:
