Grey water is household waste water generated from activities such as laundry, dishwashing, bathing, running water to reach a certain temperature and washing vegetables and hands.

Use of grey water is currently under review by the provincial and federal government.

Grey water can theoretically be used for flushing toilets or to irrigate gardens, however, there are health risks if this water is not managed properly. Link to Health Canada for more information.

The danger of cross-connecting grey water and potable water also poses health risks.

Many people use containers to collect kitchen water collected while washing vegetables and fruits. Small personal choices like this can go a long way to reducing your water consumption. Please use common sense:

  • Ensure young children or pets cannot access the standing water.
  • Ensure flies and mosquitoes cannot breed in the water.
  • Use water promptly to avoid breeding bacteria and viruses.
