Todd Jarvis, Associate Director of OSU's Institute for Water and Watersheds, blogmeister of the Rainbow Water Coalition, and a good friend, gave an informative Power Point presentation on graywater in Oregon before a small (15) but enthusiastic group at the second meeting of the Oregon Section of the AWRA.
Todd is a member of the Oregon Graywater Advisory Committee, which is currently grappling with developing recommendations for the treatment, disposal, and reuse of graywater that are protective of public health and the environment.
Todd's training as a mediator will no doubt come in handy. Could be as much fun as dealing with exempt wells!
But Todd failed to address the most critical issue of all: is it graywater, greywater, gray water, or grey water?
That issue could make the donnybrook over groundwater vs. ground water seem tame.
