Watergreyorg Saving Information

The Greywater Guild is on the scene, a group of professionals banded together to ensure that the quality of their work remains at its highest.

Their goals include:

  • Education of the public about the value and availability of greywater conservation.
  • Promotion of the successful installation of the large number of simple sustainable greywater systems necessary to significantly reduce the amount of water drawn from local rivers and aquifers.
  • Providing a means for the homeowner to maintain their landscapes through greywater irrigation  instead of fresh water irrigation
  • Encouragement of the use of simple sustainable systems that minimize environmental impact and maximize longevity.
  • Providing sustainable livelihoods to environmentally concerned individuals and companies working toward water conservation.

You may learn more about them through their website: http://www.montereygreywater.com/ or call 831 373 6752.
