A builder in Augusta, Ga., wants an ordinance that would allow the use of gray water in water-reclamation systems. The average household produces 4,000 to 5,000 gallons of gray water each month from water such as is used in washing machines and showers. Advantages include the possibility of watering "your grass on days your neighbor might not be able to because of drought," said the builder. "You'll also save money on your water bill and, possibly, on your storm water fee."
