2.7 Acre Strip Mall, Chula Vista, California
Innovative Laundromat driven irrigation system ~ Commercial Property project using one tenant’s waste water to beautify the entire complex:
Tucked away in an underground vault is a ReWater system that uses water from a 60-machine laundromat to irrigate 14,000 square feet landscape in and around a 2.7 acre strip mall, located at 4th and C Street. The property owner had a ReWater system at his home, so had this commercial system installed in 2003 after completely demolishing the old mall and replacing every tenant but the laundry. Though this system contains the dirtiest greywater we’ve ever experienced, you can sip your Starbucks latte while the shrubbery next to your feet is irrigated with water that was discharged just moments ago from the laundromat, and you’d never know it.
