Fixed Routes in the Helena Areas
We can establish three fixed routes connecting most of Helena and East Helena using existing public transit resources. The map above shows the proposed routes. These routes will make public transit more useful to everyone in our community.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
What is Gray Water?
Gray water is waste water that does not contain human waste. In other words, gray water is the water that comes from washing machines, dishwashers, showers, and sinks. This water can be recycled on-site and used for irrigating landscape.
How Does it Work?
A separate set of pipes will be installed for a gray water system. Water from toilets and kitchen sinks will go into the sewer or septic system. Water from all other sources will go into a basic filtration system to remove particles. Filtered water is directed to fill toilet bowls or to an underground irrigation system to water lawns or trees. Homemade and professional gray water systems have been approved and installed around Montana since becoming legal in 2007.
