Greywater is gently used water from fountains, sinks, and washing machines that are used a second time to usually water gardens. Making the switch can cut water usage in half.

At Mira Costa, greywater has been used to provide plants with water since the ’80s. Using reclaimed water has allowed the school to override the strict restrictions of only using clean water sprinklers once a week for 15 minutes.

Alongside other improvements in the city moving toward sustainability, greywater is making a great impact on cutting water prices and usage in California.
