The Greywater Alliance
The Greywater Alliance is a group of organizations and individuals whose mission is to make reuse of greywater a critical and integral part of water conservation efforts in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. We are currently exploring the idea of a developing a 2011 Greywater Conference to be held in the Bay Area in the fall of 2011. If you are interested in being involved, please contact us.
Bay Area Greywater Roundtable Series
In 2010, the Greywater Alliance sponsored a five-part series of discussions and presentations for the Bay Area greywater community, including building professionals, designers, city inspectors and planners, policy makers, water district staff, and greywater advocates. See our Roundtable Resources page for pdfs of the presentations as well as lists of the attendees.
Greywater is...water from your bathroom sinks, showers, tubs, and washing machines. It is not water that has come into contact with feces, either from the toilet or from washing diapers. It is also known as graywater, grey water and gray water.
Greywater is a resource
Greywater is an important resource as it can be safely reused for outdoor irrigation or for toilet flushing. It reduces fresh water use, saves money, and reduces flow to sewage treatment plants. Installation of greywater systems could be an up-and-coming green job market.
