Optimal management of water is one of the top environmental decisions wineries can make. Implementing water-use efficiency measures and sound process wastewater and stormwater management are the cornerstones of a sustainable water cycle at wineries. Developing sustainable management practices for your facility will involve reviewing best management practices developed throughout the industry as well
as creating your own.  

Sustainability means making choices that require more rigorous management efforts than simply meeting regulatory thresholds. The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) process provides a way to identify possible environmental impacts that may result from a proposed winery project. Outlined in this document are the minimum water use, wastewater, and stormwater regulatory requirements, along with additional suggested actions for sustainable water and wastewater management.
