Greywater is water from sinks, showers, and washing machines. Instead of sending it down the sewer it can be safely and simply redirected into the landscape for irrigation. Reusing household greywater saves water, saves time, and reduces water flowing into the sewer system. Find out if a greywater system is a good match for your home and landscape in our informative evening slideshow presentation "Drought-Proof Your Landscape with Greywater."

Board Urges 20% Water Reduction
On January 22, 2014, the FRCD Board of Directors called on the public to voluntarily reduce their water use by 20%. Although EGWD's water supply is stable, Governor Brown's declaration of a drought emergency requires even communities who have ample water to treat this precious resource with even more care and greater sense of responsibility.
