The Urban Farmer Store is helping the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) conduct a pilot study of laundry-to-landscape graywater systems in San Francisco. We are looking for residents of a single-family home or a two-unit residential building to join our small pilot program. Approved participants will receive a discounted kit, a free workshop and a comprehensive guidance manual. All you need is a clothes washer, a flat or down-sloping garden and a commitment to saving water!
Participation in the SFPUC program includes:
A free workshop and a copy of the San Francisco Graywater Design Manual for Outdoor Irrigation, a step-by-step manual for do-it-yourselfers. No two graywater installations will be exactly alike as each system will vary depending on the sites soil type, washing machine type, and number of laundry loads. Gather as much information about your site before attending a workshop.
Do-It-Yourself Graywater Workshop-Learn how to install your own graywater system!
Day 1: At the Urban Farmer Store- Participants will learn the do’s and don’t's of graywater reuse, and how to design and install a laundry-to-landscape greywater system.
Day 2: At your home! Participants will install their own systems and experienced professionals will be available for consulting and advice, including a site visit to each home.
A $95 subsidy toward the purchase of a $130 L2L kit for participants who meet all program requirements. The kit includes basic components to divert washing machine discharge water for irrigation use. Additional pipe, tubing and landscape mulch basins will be required.
For more information about the L2L kit and our new pilot program, contact:
