For our waste water. we follow the concept of earthships (fully autonomic housing) that reuses water two times. First filtration is the filtration of grey water. Water from shower, kitchen,bath and sinks are filtered trough different plants and will be reused to flush toilets. This water, called black water, will then also be filtered trough a second filtration area, consisting mainly out of reeds. An this will result in clean water.
