Greywater & Rainwater - What the Regulations Say (or don’t)

Guest presenter: David Venhuizen, PE

Location: Casa de Luz, 1701 Toomey Road, Austin, Texas

As we, and many places in the world, continue to suffer from drought conditions, it would behoove us get more stingy and creative with ALL of our sources of water. Rainwater and reclaimed water such as greywater (typically defined as water from washing machines, showers & bathtubs, and handsinks) offer potential for significant contributions to an integrated water system.

But do our local and state regulations cramp our style with regards to what we can do with harvested greywater and rainwater? Local civil engineer and advocate of integrated, decentralized water/”wastewater” systems, David Venhuizen, will interpret the regulations for us. As David says, “It’s all water and it’s all good!”

This presentation is free and open to the public (donations to help cover room rental gratefully accepted). No RSVP required. For questions, contact Gayle through “Contact Us” or 512-478-9033.
