Pasadena residents will learn about installing their own laundry-to-landscape greywater systems during a workshop on Saturday, May 20, sponsored by Pasadena Water and Power.
The workshop will be held at the Villa-Parke Community Center at 363 E. Villa Street in Pasadena, from 9 to 11 a.m.
Last year, PWP launched its L2L Greywater Program, offering free workshops to educate customers on how to install the greywater recycling system, and free onsite technical evaluations and consultations. Attendees at the workshop were given $80 vouchers they used to purchase greywater system parts.
“This year, PWP has received grant funding to expand the program with new offerings for customers including the direct install of laundry-to-landscape greywater systems for income-qualified customers at no cost,” PWP Conservation Programs Specialist Ruzan Soloyan said in an email to customers.
This year, customers who attend the workshop will receive a voucher for double the standard incentive for L2L greywater systems: $160 towards the purchase of greywater system parts. The voucher will cover most of the cost of the parts to install an L2L greywater system, Solovan said.
The workshop is a free event but registration is required through the PWP webpage, www.cityofpasadena.net/waterandpower/greywater. Customers can also call the Citizen Service Center (CSC) at 626-744-7311 to register for the workshop.
After attending the workshop, customers will also be given an opportunity to sign up for an on-site technical evaluation at no cost.
