Did you know that in the City of San Diego, you can get a $250 rebate for a Laundry Greywater system?  This is a great time to implement your low cost greywater system!  Parts for a simple Laundry to Landscape System often cost $250-$500, and the system can result in thousands of gallons of free water for your fruit trees every year!

Brook Sarson, co-owner of H2OME and CatchingH2O Inc has been installing Greywater and Rainwater systems and teaching about water conservation and Permaculture Design in San Diego and Orange County for 8 years.   Her focus is on shifting the dialog in San Diego from reaction to drought conditions to a standing ethic of place.
