Thanks for the tip!

The new city hall in Chandler, Arizona, has signs up:
Urinals and Toilets are served with gray water
Do Not Drink
Hey, I wonder how many thirsty people went to the restrooms and then came back out, disappointed?

  1. Where do they get this gray water? I have never heard of it or seen it. Ed in NJ P.S. Being from NJ, often called the cesspool of the USA, I have seen brown, murky water; green water; and even water so filled with oils and human waste that it was "dead" water, but have not heard of Gray water.

  2. Hey Ed,

    You know, I'd just assumed it was a universally used term for wastewater that can be reused for irrigation. That is, it's not sewage, but it is sink or bath water. Maybe it's a West coast thing?

    Thanks for the comment!


No bad words, thanks!
