Systems Modeling for the Planning of Greywater Management in New Housing Developments in the City of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico
Abstract:The implementation of a greywater reuse scheme for new housing developments in Ensenada would achieve significant savings (up to 37%) in water consumption with the corresponding monetary savings in water supply and wastewater treatment. New housing facilities would have green areas irrigated with greywater which would represent ecological and aesthetical benefits to city. A more detailed economic valuation has to be undertaken in order to determine the optimum number of houses to be included in the greywater reuse scheme. The formal evaluation of greywater systems is important to show its potential value when implemented in a large scale (city-wide, new development and re-development areas). The findings of this study will serve as additional evidence to the potential cost and water savings of implementing descentralized systems such as greywater for fast-growing areas.
