Thanks to clever Australian, author of the greatest greywater gardening manual ever, and greywater entrepreneur Paul James at Just Water Savers USA for the news that the Draft Oregon Graywater Rules are ready for public comment. WOW, that was quick.
Paul pointed out a couple of interesting issues:
- "Type 1 graywater" means graywater that may have passed through primary graywater treatment, is oxidized and has not passed through secondary graywater treatment, and
- There is a $0 application fee and a $50 annual fee for a Tier 1 style graywater system.
So for the greywater reuse junkies out there in Portlandia, get ready to celebrate saving some water, but don't expect to see a return on your greywater reuse investment for quite awhile. And don't forget to recycle your wine bottle!
