2.7 Acre Strip Mall, Chula Vista, CA

  • A commercial property was reimagined in 2003.
  • A Laundromat supplies irrigation water for over 14,000 square feet of landscape.
  • In operation for over two decades.

The property owner has a ReWater system at his home, so had this commercial system installed in 2003 after demolishing the old mall and replacing every tenant but the laundromat.

The filter system is tucked away in an underground vault out in the landscape. It uses water from the 60 machine laundromat to irrigate >14,000 square feet of landscape in and around the 2.7 acre strip mall.

There is no control over the laundry products used in the washers and they produce the dirtiest greywater we’ve ever measured. Still, you can sip your Starbucks latte as the shrubbery near your feet is irrigated underground with filtered greywater that was laundry discharge just minutes ago and you’d never know it.
