Water Recycling and Treatment

The water independence requirement of the Living Building Challenge has inspired theOtherDada to pursue an overall strategy for GARLIC house Masterplan. Rainwater and wastewater can be harvested and treated for beneficial uses including washing, bathing, toilet flushing and irrigation, but also reduces pollution and the use of extensive stormwater infrastructure through the use of the ponds and infiltration of water in the aquifer.


The diagram shown above illustrates the water recycling and treatment strategy as devised through meetings with our environmental consultants and mechanical engineers.
