hope to see you at the yosemite greywater conference! this is the first ever conference of its type and is attracting participants from across the nation. we are very excited~~!!

greywater corps, as part of a coalition including the river project and geosyntec, has been working with the city of l.a. to revise and streamline the permitting process for simple greywater systems - and our work has paid off! branched drain systems can now be permitted via a standard plan and over-the-counter permit, for a fraction of the previous time and expense. gwc provided consultation and did the beautiful drawings.

leigh will be giving a presentation at the california greywater conference in yosemite: "greywater - a southern california perspective".

the california building standards commission adopted revised greywater standards intended to address ongoing drought conditions. this measure repeals years of regressive building codes, making it possible for homeowners to legally install simple greywater reclamation systems in their residences, in many cases without even requiring a building permit.
