Learn to install greywater systems to rehydrate our landscapes. This course will cover basic plumbing and landscaping skills needed for four types of common greywater systems. You’ll learn to conduct a site assessment, determine which systems to install and how to maintain them. You'll learn what plants do best with greywater and the ins and outs of greywater reuse. By course end, you’ll know about proper installation of code-compliant washing machine and simple systems under the new California state code adopted in fall of 2009. Plus, you’ll have hands-on practice installing 3-5 new systems in Petaluma households. After completing the hands-on portion of the course, you'll have the opportunity to take a 50-question exam which you must pass to earn your greywater certification and get listed as a certified greywater system installer.

Laura Allen is a founder of Greywater Action and has spent a decade exploring low-tech, urban ecological sanitation technologies like greywater.
