Santa Monica, California Grey Water Policy

Congratulations to Santa Monica for taking the great intentions of all the people who have been working so hard for so long to get a reasonable grey water policy passed in the State of California, and throwing it in the trash can.  The City has decided to charge $800 and have it take 30 days through the planning and building departments to get a grey water permit.  $800 and 30 days for permitting a project that, for a simple system, could cost about $14 in materials and take 2 hours to install.  Brilliant.
