How about the guy that might run his grey out of the same hose that his black drains out of instead of a garden hose like mentioned before. That hose may have all kinds of nasty stuff still in it if it wasn't properly rinsed the last time he used it.

Sorry I didn't get to thank everyone for your reply's earlier, but we hooked up this morning and I just got home about an hour ago. Thank you for all your reply's thus far. The reason I brought this subject up again, was when my family was camping this week at McKinney Falls in Austin, TX, my daughter asked about the pop-up camper that was next to us and the separate out door shower they set up, which looked like a small standing tent with a hose hooked up to it and a hose that drained out into the woods.....So when my 9 yoa daughter asked why they could do that and why I was hauling our shower water over to the dump station in our tote....I was stumped and didn't have an answer for her. It made sense to me, as in the summer we frequently shower at our rear outdoor shower in our bathing suits, so the gray tank doesn't fill up. I just wanted to let everyone know why I searched the forum and brought up the subject again...I must say you all are a wealth of knowledge and are very cordial to one anther!!

I don't see a problem with letting grey water drain on the ground....the problem I see is you have some trailers that have massive grey water tanks, and in parks that are heavily used you would have a muddy mess. I think that is the biggerst problem is how to control the amount of grey water that you are allowed to dump, also if it is raining and you add more water to the ground you are going to have the potential of a huge mess. I think it comes back to a few would spoil it for everyone so it is easier to make a rule that states you can't dump grey water on the ground

Grumpy, Not all greywater is equally "grey". Kitchen sink water laden with food solids is more heavily contaminated than greywater from showers and bathroom sinks. Although greywater from these sources contains less pathogens than blackwater, many regulatory bodies consider it as blackwater.
