Going gray (water) may be getting easier

July 8, 2009 | 10:49 am


Using the water that washes your clothes to also water your garden seems to make sense, especially in the current drought conditions. But for years installing such a system legally was prohibitively expensive in Southern California.

Well, that may change. As Susan Carpenter reports on our sister blog Greenspace, California may adopt a more lenient gray water code as early as August. It's not a done deal yet, but environmentalists and water-savers have reason to hope.
