Outdoor Cleaning Wastewater Savings

By using a broom and sweeping, you avoid creating any wastewater. If you do use water for outdoor cleaning, much of the wastewater produced will probably run-off into the storm water system that drains to a nearby creek or will evaporate. If possible, you should reuse some of the wastewater onto your landscape. Be sure and use a non-toxic biodegradable soap if you intend to reuse water for plants.
