Description Ecology’s Criteria for Sewage Works Design (CSWD), also known as the “Orange Book”, provides technical guidance for the design of sewage collection, treatment, and water reclamation systems. For a number of reasons the book was not updated in a timely manner. Water Quality Program management assembled a team, known as the Orange Book Work Group, (OBWG), which developed a process to make the Orange Book a “living document”. Their process provides an efficient way to get and keep it up-to-date.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
