Greywater recycling in rural Karnataka

This is a nightime picture of a greywater recycling technology which is in use in a small village outside of Mysore. Instead of simply having waste water drain away into a river via a series of ditches, houses have their greywater drain into a specially prepared pit, composed of layers of rocks and topsoil--this drains quickly, and replenishes the groundwater supply. Very cool!

That was very interesting. Does the soapiness and toxic detergent contents get filtered completely? How to clean it?
