Description Local governments are being asked to review and approve emerging treatment technologies. Guidance is needed for an acceptable protocol and a process for evaluating and accepting new treatment technologies. This guidance document’s primary purpose is to establish a testing protocol and process for evaluating and reporting on the performance and appropriate uses of emerging stormwater treatment technologies. This document is also intended for use in evaluating public domain practices possibly resulting in changes to the design standards for these practices in the Stormwater Management Manual. Local governments statewide can use the designations posted on Ecology’s website where applicable, depending on local conditions.
NOTES This guidance document is no longer valid for new applications. Applicants currently using this guidance manual may continue to do so. The publication number for the guidance manual for new TAPE applications is 11-10-061. (See link in Related Publications
