Water supply in line with meter back to clean-outs
 Line to city sewer is just to the South of the water line/meter
 See sewer line connection at top.  Grey water clean-outs to East (left), Note Diversion Valve. Tap exits to West above black water line  Black water clean-outs to West (right).
 This is the diversion valve for the grey water system.  Note well the position of the handle. This is set so grey water will dump into the sewer like a normal house.  This setting indicates the grey water is OFF. Note the handle is "OVER" the stub to which we would connect whatever grey water distribution we decide on. AND, the label OFF is "ACROSS" the stub. Also note, the plumber was not generous with his stub! by the time we cut the cap off, we'll have one shot at connecting the distribution system. And, we'll be working in a 2 or 3 foot deep hole. I'll bitch later...  If the valve is turned 90 degrees, the handle would be "OVER" the sewer line and the label OFF would be "ACROSS" the sewer line.  An irrigation box will go over this valve. We will need to get an extension like you use to open or close the drain in your irrigation system. The valve is pretty stiff so my suspicion is this is not a valve we will change a lot.
 Connecting to line to City. Note the line runs to East about 2 feet to the South of the water supply line. Not sure where it hits the street, but did not encounter when digging for water supply.  Legacy sewer line running to the West and then around to enter the house in the vicinity of the kitchen has been abandoned but left in place. Removed the clean-outs but that is all.
