The "Recommended Standards for Wastewater Facilities" by the Great Lakes - Upper Mississippi River Board of State and Provincial Public Health and Environmental Managers, commonly referred to as the Ten States Standards, is referenced in state rules and used by the Iowa DNR to supplement Iowa's Wastewater Facilities Design Standards. Iowa is represented on the Board. The 2014 Edition is available online from the Ten States Standards website. This wastewater facilities design document is an update prepared jointly by a board including ten Midwestern states and the Province of Ontario.
