Discharge of wastewater into private wastewater systems Exemption from the permit requirement

Service Description

For the discharge of wastewater (industrial wastewater, commercial wastewater) into a private wastewater facility (indirect discharge), an exemption from the permit requirement can be applied for in Germany, provided that compliance with the legal requirements is ensured by contract with the operator of the private wastewater facility. Exemption from the permit requirement is granted by the competent authorities of the individual countries.

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 treated 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 facilities are needed to reduce the pollutant load in such a way that the wastewater can then be treated without harm in a public or private wastewater treatment plant.
