Apply for discharge of wastewater into a body of water

Service Description

If you want to discharge wastewater into a body of water, you need a permit from the responsible agency. Wastewater includes:

  • Wastewater: used water from households and businesses.
  • Precipitation water: rainwater and meltwater
  • Mixed water: mixed dirt and precipitation water

The direct discharge of wastewater into a body of water requires that the wastewater has been treated beforehand. In doing so, you must meet various requirements. The Wastewater Ordinance (AbwV) sets out the requirements for discharging wastewater into bodies of water. This includes requirements for various branches of origin, such as municipal wastewater and various industrial and commercial sectors.

The requirements pursue the goal of avoiding deterioration of the ecological potential and chemical status of water bodies.
