Greywater Workshop:
Pasadena/Altadena Area
July 12, 2014,
9am to 4pm

Interested in learning how to install your own simple 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 laundry-to-landscape system, converting a washing machine to safe, legal greywater reuse. This type of system can be installed by a reasonably handy person in a weekend for around $200 in parts.

topics covered:
++brief introduction to california's water infrastructure and politics
++ what is greywater?
++ benefits and drawbacks of greywater reuse
++common mistakes: what NOT to do
++ legal and permitting issues
++ health and soil considerations
++ simple greywater systems:
drain out back ++
movable drain ++
laundry drum ++
branched drain ++
laundry-to-landscape ++
pumped systems ++

The workshop will take place at a private home in the city of Pasadena (address provided upon registration). The morning will be classroom time, the afternoon will be the installation - you are welcome to stay for as long or as short as you like. No prior construction experience is necessary. Participants will be invited to learn adn help with simple pvc plumbing, drilling, cutting, and digging;

Cost of the workshop is $20 to $50 per person. Early registration is recommended since the class is expected to fill up.
