Let us help you install a greywater irrigation system.

This summer, Ecology Action and Santa Clara Valley Water District are offering no or low-cost professional installation of clothes washer greywater systems for qualifying residents of Santa Clara County. Greywater from clothes washers can be used to water fruit trees, sub-tropical flowering shrubs and vines, tomatoes, chiles, squash and other thirsty plants that need regular water during our long, dry summers. We can help you create a garden oasis with your laundry greywater.
