Gayle, it is legal to allow graywater to absorb into the earth on your property as long as its not an open pond. I have a large swale that my shower water soaks into.
I have a separate pail privy compost toilet that’s inspected and permitted.
The issue is currently this system does not replace a septic system but should qualify if the bill passes which would allow a home to be permitted without septic.

How are you currently dealing with gray water on your homestead?


Hi Doralee, the bill is about 50% of the way through the process. It looks promising and I’ll post an update soon.
