Abstract

The informal settlement of Langrug, near Stellenbosch, South Africa, faces a variety of issues stemming from inadequate greywater management. The goal of this project was to use a sustainable process for community-based in situ upgrading of greywater systems. The students worked closely with community co-researchers to develop a self-reforming process and apply it to several greywater intervention projects in Langrug. The co- researchers will continue to use and adapt this process to mobilize the community and develop greywater management systems throughout 2012.
