WHO has a range of useful publications. The one I know best is a bit old "Guidelines for the safe use of wastewater and excreta in agriculture and aquaculture" but I see they also have SANITATION SAFETY PLANNING,MANUAL FOR SAFE USE AND DISPOSAL OF WASTEWATER,GREYWATER AND EXCRETA downloadable at which is more recent. Suggest browsing their publications to see what is most appropriate to your needs.
