In this way, is it illegal to dump GREY water on the ground?

It's not illegal to dump gray water, or empty your gray tanks, on the ground in open, public BLM areas. This is primarily where dispersed camping is allowed. However, in areas where the BLM manages developed campgrounds, recreational areas, or wildlife preserves, they may prohibit such activity on a case-by-case basis.

Also Know, can urine go in GREY water tank? All urine is not sterile. Some disease affects urine. If you dump grey water with urine on the ground in a larger volume it will stink.

Also know, can you dump GREY water anywhere?

Not anywhere, but there are ways to safely empty your gray water tank if you're not near a dump station.

Can you let gray water on the ground?

Gray water is all of the wastewater that drains from your shower and kitchen and bathroom sinks. Gray water has some bacteria but it can be filtered and reused in gardens or lawns, if done properly. Black water contains human waste and is unsafe. It must be stored in its own tank and disposed of very carefully.
