AWE Releases Graywater Report

Graywater cover 3Planners, designers, decision makers, and researchers currently lack the information necessary to determine if graywater reuse systems are viable and provide cost-effective potable water savings. At the same time, these professionals and other stakeholders are increasingly under pressure to promote and/or incentivize the use of single-family packaged graywater reuse systems. AWE has now released a report which includes easy-to-follow steps for determining the cost-benefit ratio for these systems, and which gives utilities information on how to evaluate whether or not they should include graywater systems in their program offerings.
