Demystifying Greywater with Laura Allen

The Regenerative Real Estate Podcast

Water is one of life's most precious resources, yet abuse and mismanage it. That's not surprising because we have created a system and society that divorces ourselves from where we get our water. We take for granted the potable water in our sinks, and are ignorant about where it goes after it flows into our drains. On this episode, Laura Allen of Greywater Action helps to demystify greywater and how we can take practical steps to integrate water systems into our lives, our homes, and our yards. She provides low cost and low tech solutions that everyone can partake in. Laura is the author of The Water-Wise Home: How to Conserve, Capture, and Reuse Water in Your Home and Landscape, a phenomenal resource that should be on every Change Agent's book shelf.

Albemarle County Board Of Supervisors update: Wednesday night, 9/16/2020 Albemarle BOS voted 6-0 around 9:30 p.m. to extend their current Covid-19 Disaster Ordinance rules thru November 18. This extends the rules another 63 days from today’s date, effective immediately. Most likely this will not help the local, independent businesses.3. UVA Football Coach Bronco Mendenhall: ‘There’s a difference between saying you want to play and showing you want to play,'” Mendenhall said. “The protocols and the numbers really bear that out, and I’m not saying we’re not at risk or that it couldn’t happen to us because the actions of a few can really skew the numbers and have a team affected so quickly. To this point, our team has shown through diligence and the protocols, again with zero positives currently, that it can be done.”https://richmond.com/sports/college/uva-coach-on-tech-cancellation-theres-a-difference-between-saying-you-want-to-play-and/article_7c0922e8-d795-514a-b420-44af5b2e6a6d.html#tracking-source=home-trending4.
