September 28, 2017 0:00am

The San Luis Rey Watershed Council (SLRWC) has opened the interest application for the Water Harvesting Pilot Program funded by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. They are working with Catching H2O to provide FREE installations for:

18 locations for a Laundry-to-Landscape (LTL) installations:

Laundry to Landscape systems simply re-direct the used water from your washing machines, safely delivering it to your yard to be used for irrigation (instead of out to the sewer/septic system).

Catching H2O will work with each participant selected to make sure the irrigation is correctly installed & is safe for your family. Also, there is a manual override switch, where you can redirect the washing machine water back to the sewer (ie: if you’re washing diapers or using a bunch of bleach for a particular load).

2 locations for full systems: Cistern, Rain Garden, & LTL
