Graywater Efficiencies at #MACoCon

Find out how reusing slightly dirty water (aka “graywater”) has both environmental and economic benefits at the December 2019 MACo Winter Conference. Learn how graywater recycling could help your county be more efficient.

50 Shades of Graywater: What Does Water Reuse Mean For Your County?


The General Assembly passed legislation in 2019 authorizing graywater reuse in residential settings and now both the state and local governments must create new regulations and policies. Panelists will discuss the environmental and economic benefits of water reuse for county governments, potential health and safety concerns over water reuse, and pending state regulations.
