Graywater Use and Surveys in San Diego

Leaks and over-irrigation can cause significant waste. The City offers water conservation services to help customers achieve savings. Free-of-charge water surveys are available to City of San Diego’s water customers. As part of this program, a water conservation representative will tour a property to identify leaks and water-saving opportunities.  Participants can receive water-saving equipment and information, including low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, and other free items. The representative will also evaluate landscapes and irrigation systems. Since this program emphasizes customer education, it is important the resident be present at the time of the survey. Surveys include: Residential Interior and Exterior Surveys, Multi-family Interior and Exterior Surveys, Commercial Landscape Surveys, and Water-Wise Business Survey Program.

FYI:  a standard home generates approximately 160 gallons of graywater per day, or nearly 60,000 gallons per year. Graywater is untreated wastewater which has not come into contact with toilet and kitchen waste. It is water from showers and baths, bathroom sinks and washing machines that can be directly reused for irrigation without undergoing a treatment process. Graywater does NOT include water from toilets, kitchen sinks, dishwashers or soiled laundry water, due to potential health issues.
