"But Oregon residents can't divert their gray water just yet. It could take as long as two years to establish rules and the permit process, said Ron Doughten, DEQ's Biosolids and Water Reuse Program coordinator.

That's how long it took in other states, he said, although Oregon might move faster because others paved the way."
