The following paper evaluates the acceptance of residential greywater and rainwater reclamation systems through analysis of survey data and related research. The survey data was compiled from questions administered to sustainable-focused general contractors in the Midwestern United States. The data was compared to the findings of another study related to water conservation to find supportive similarities as well as contrasting findings. It was determined that the most important requirement to improve greywater and rainwater reclamation system implementation is to educate. Education and engagement of consumers, general contractors and state officials on the benefits of water conservation is critical to the success of preserving natural water supplies. This also includes revising K-12 curriculum to incorporate sustainable education.
