Get Drenched With Know How! Moving Toward A Water Wise World


Feb 2016


On Feb. 29, 2016 get ready to be drenched with information.  Because John Russell, an expert on the subject will expand your horizons on the topic.

Imagine a world where water is not only used smartly but reused wisely. Where systems clearly measure and monitor the amount of water we have aWaterwise bannervailable in our homes and community. Where laundry water is directed to the landscape. Where rainwater is captured and stored.

Come to the Los Altos Library on February 29 to hear directly from John Russell, a longtime leader in the field of water systems design and founder and principal designer at WaterSprout, Inc., a design/build/maintain greywater and rainwater systems company based in Oakland, California.

So far from its 180 projects, WaterSprout, Inc., has helped save 2.5M total gallons of tap water, helped get 1.6M gallons of greywater reused, and helped collect 738K gallons of rainwater. Are their methods the answer to preserving water in our Mediterranean climate?

WaterSprout offers rainwater, greywater, and water-use monitoring—from simple laundry-to-landscape systems to more comprehensive automated designs. The company provides consultations, water assessments, design, permits, installation, maintenance, and contracting and subcontracting.
