Bud Clark Commons in Portland, Oregon by Holst Architecture » 10. Graywater

We chose to install a graywater system rather than a rainwater system for four reasons: 1. The State of Oregon had recently begun to allow graywater recycling in commercial buildings and our client wanted to us this project as a case study. 2. Stormwater management was already being implemented in the design to limit runoff of rainwater. 3. Significant sewer cost savings could be realized by recycling graywater to toilets. 4. Because graywater is produced all year long without a dry season like rainwater, significantly smaller tanks could be installed on the tight urban site conserving space and installation cost. - Photo Credit: Holst Architecture
