Conservation Design Best Practices: Rain Water Catchment and Grey Water Systems

Presented by

Peter Rumsey, Point Energy Innovations; Bobby Markowitz, Ecological Concerns Inc., Central Coast Wilds

About this talk

Onsite water resources including rainwater catchment and greywater can be used to decrease or eliminate net water demand of commercial and residential developments. Integrated design incorporating smart water-efficient landscape design with water re-use systems result in "Closed Loop Design". New practices such as bringing rainwater into the house for domestic, non-potable use and using grey water to irrigate landscapes with native and drought tolerant plants with innovative irrigation techniques, may be the future of development in California and beyond as water resources become more scarce and unreliable.
