About the project

The Denver Graywater Project (DGP) is a partnership between Mines Without Borders and Bayaud Enterprises. The goal of the project is to design a system to treat and recycle graywater from Bayaud’s laundry trucks so the water can be used again for laundry. Bayaud hopes this system will improve the sustainability of their mobile services model and promote other water reuse projects in the Denver area and beyond.
