Affordable Water: Conservation and Reuse Tactics for Multifamily Projects

March 6, 2012
Lunch is included

Where’s the rain? This year’s low rainfall reminds us that water conservation is just as important as conserving energy. By implementing some simple water saving techniques, multifamily housing projects can cut costs and help protect our local watersheds.

In this meeting, Brent Bucknum of Hyphae Design Lab will present his work with affordable housing developers to identify water conservation opportunities in both existing and new construction housing projects. Brent is doing cuting edge work in this field, and you won’t want to miss his high-energy presentation!

Brent will be joined by Mary Lucero-Dorst from EBALDC who will describe EBALDC’s efforts to utilize greywater recycling as both a water and an energy conserving strategy.
