Did you know there is a well-spring of reusable water hiding in your house that will save you money and help your garden flourish? If you are rebuilding this is a great time to learn how to incorporate graywater re-use into your site and take advantage of this free resource.
Daily Acts is excited to present an informative event in partnership with the City of Santa Rosa and Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership on 'Growing with Graywater in Your Rebuild', a way to connect you with resources, products and designers who can help you incorporate these systems into your site. This event is geared towards homeowners who are rebuilding and will provide more details on the optional features outlined in the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership's scalable, easy-to-permit landscape templates.
We will start off the evening with a short presentation on the what, why and how of graywater reuse looking at both the laundry and branched drain systems, how to calculate your discharge and where to direct it. This will be followed by an interactive panel discussion with local experts in the field focused on how to plan for graywater in the rebuild with plumbing and placement tips and other trouble shooting advice.

After a brief Q & A with the panelists, the event will conclude with a mini expo featuring resource tables and additional designers who are able to provide follow-up support.
We hope to see you at this informative event and to support you to grow with graywater in your rebuild!
