      Thanks to public alarm about current drought conditions in California,
      and intervention from the governor's office, the new California gray
      water standard could go into effect August 4th, 2009 right after the
      California Building Standards Commission Meeting, six weeks from now,
      instead of in 2011, the original proposed date. The Deparment of
      Housing and Community Development, the authors of the new standard,
      believe that it will likely pass.

      The new rules allow a greywater system that consists of a washing
      machine and/or one other fixture such as a shower to be installed
      without a permit, if the system meets a short list of reasonable
      requirements.

      This is the approach used successfully in the states of Arizona, New
      Mexico, Texas, and soon Nevada, Montana, and Oregon. With this change,
      California is regaining its leadership role for greywater reuse.
