How do you plan to install the graywater system?
How did you hear about the program

A "crawl space" is an area of limited height under a floor that gives access to wiring and plumbing, which can make it easier to install graywater piping. A "slab foundation" is a large, thick slab of (typically) concrete that may require altering in order to install or route graywater piping.

Use this guide to find your soil texture and to learn what each texture means (USDA). Most locations in Santa Clara County will be a type of clay soil. If you don’t know your soil type after trying to follow the guide, please feel free to ask for assistance by calling (408) 630-2554.
