Graywater webinar set July 22

Water Wise Davis, a working group of Cool Davis, will host a free graywater showcase online via Zoom webinar from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 22. This year’s theme is the connection between graywater and growing your own healthy food.

Leslie Crenna of EcoAssistant will present information about water reuse at the household level, the potential for graywater across our community, and the two basic types of graywater systems, plus a bit about growing artichokes in Davis with graywater.

Guest panelists will share their personal experiences growing healthy food with graywater and other topics such as creating a wetland with graywater and a new app that searches for graywater elements in general plans across the state of California. Q&A and discussions will follow presentations.

Guests panelists include Catherine Brinkley, UC Davis Assistant Professor of Community and Regional Development and Paul Havemann, Steward for Stebbins Cold Canyon with the UC Davis John Muir Institute. Special guests to be announced.

After hearing the presentations and discussions, participants will be asked: Are you a good candidate for graywater? Throw your virtual ticket into the jar to win a free professional consultation and 1 of 2 laundry to landscape parts kits ($75 value).
