Discharge of wastewater into public sewage systems Permit

Service Description

In Germany, a permit is generally required for the discharge of wastewater (sewage) into a public wastewater system (indirect discharge), insofar as the Wastewater Ordinance specifies requirements for the wastewater at the point of occurrence or prior to its mixing. Permits are issued by the competent authorities in the individual states.

For those industries and activities (such as chemical industry, paper production, metal processing, cooling water use) where pollutants are to be expected in the wastewater that are not sufficiently purified in a municipal wastewater treatment plant, the legislator has laid down requirements in the industry-specific annexes to the Wastewater Ordinance.

To comply with these requirements, special measures and wastewater pretreatment plants are needed to reduce the pollutant load in such a way that the wastewater can then be treated without harm in a public wastewater treatment plant.
