    Hi Vannesa,

    Great pondering on the connections of water, culture and the current state of greywater use of Saibai Islanders!

    While I’m still seeking answers, I’m curious to know what you mean by ‘better’ in question #3? It helps to define what ‘better’ or ‘best’ means to your team to help you decide which idea or solution you’ll pursue further. Look at this resource that gives you some background on creating a Decision Matrix and listing the pros and cons.

    Greywater is a form of wastewater that has the potential to be reused before it ultimately ends in the sewerage system. If you don’t capture or divert greywater from the source, it mixes with the blackwater in the sewerage system. The Queensland Government has a fantastic resource that explains how WWTP works – Questions and answers about wastewater.

    I also found this resource to explain the basics of greywater systems, which touches on gardening use.

    I hope this helps with your further research!
