April 25, 2012toApril 27, 2012

New dates: April 25-27, 2012
Course location: Tucson

Greywater use is not only allowed by an increasing number of municipalities, it’s actively encouraged by many authorities in efforts to preserve water, reduce energy and chemical use in treatment plants, and deliver nutrients to soils. This three-day, hands-on training course is designed to give advanced technical knowledge in greywater systems to individuals who will implement these practices in their work. In particular, this course is relevant to architects, landscape architects, permaculture designers, plumbers, developers, irrigation specialists, and other professionals in the building trades. This course will build on knowledge of greywater systems gained through WMG’s Water Harvesting Certification course. The focus of this course will be on gravity-fed kitchen-sink and pumped-greywater systems, integrated design, policy, and plumbing best practices.

Brad Lancaster, Senior Watershed Specialist with WMG and author of the Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond book series, will lead this hands-on technical training covering advanced greywater systems.

Early registration  and alumni rates available. Applicants may also apply for a limited number of partial scholarships.
