Department of Ecology Reactivates its Reclaimed Water Rule-making

Published Jul 02, 2014

The Department of Ecology has announced a public workshop on Monday, July 14, 2014 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. to begin reactivating its rulemaking process for Reclaimed Water regulations.  Ecology plans to pick up where it left off in 2010 and adopt a new regulation, Chapter 173-219 of the Washington Administrative Code, together with a guidance manual known as the “Purple Book,”within the next two years. Ecology promises a “predictable and efficient” permitting process to encourage reclaimed water projects. For more information, contact Sarah Mack at
