AbstractWhile some people in other parts of the world experience problems with water quality and quantity, we in the United States do not face the extreme water scarcity that other parts of the world experience. This lack of extreme water scarcity makes it harder for us to be conscious of the amount of water we use in our daily household routines and in our landscapes. The clean, potable water we use every day in our washing machines, irrigation systems, sinks, baths, and showers gets put back into the sewage systems with chemicals that can be harmful to our bodies of water. Grey water is the water created from household appliances that can be recycled and reused. The greywater produced can be harvested, recycled, and reused on site, indoors and outdoors. Through researching databases and other forms of literature I am aiming to show that the implementation of grey water conservation methods will save homeowners money in the long-term, create a more sustainable landscape, and to focus on my site as an example for a more sustainable community.
