FREE Graywater Workshops!
The Ventura County Building and Safety Division will be hosting a series of “how to” workshops for homeowners wanting to convert their clothes washers to simple irrigation systems. Gray water from single-family residential clothes washing machines can now be used to irrigate shrubs, flowers and trees, with little else except some valves, piping and good maintenance practices.

During these workshops, homeowners will learn the steps necessary to successfully install the piping and drainage systems needed for irrigation with laundry gray water. Also, materials will be provided at these workshops for homeowners to take with them which will include:

  • A parts and materials list, including estimated retail prices, necessary to
  • install a basic LGDS.
  • List of tools needed to install a basic LGDS.
  • Details, guidelines and instructions for a basic LGDS.

The workshops will also feature a hands-on demonstration of what a
completed LGDS should look like.

The workshops are scheduled to be held at 800 South Victoria Ave, Ventura,
California in Room 311 at the Ventura County Hall of Administration (Enter
off of Telephone road and park in Lot G).

All Workshops will be held in room 311 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on the
following dates:
