Apply for exemption from the permit requirement for the discharge of waste water into private waste water plants

Description

For the discharge of wastewater (industrial wastewater, commercial wastewater) into a private wastewater plant (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 plant. The exemption from the authorisation requirement is granted by the competent authorities of the individual countries.

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

In order to comply with these requirements, special measures and wastewater pretreatment plants are required to reduce the pollutant load in such a way that the wastewater can then be cleaned without damage in a public or private sewage treatment plant.

Would you like to discharge wastewater into a private wastewater plant and be exempted from the permit requirement? In this case, an application for exemption of the approval requirement must be submitted to the competent authority of the respective federal state.

Contact the water authority in your county or city.

Exemption from the permit requirement can be granted on application if compliance with the legal requirements is ensured by contract with the operator of the private wastewater plant.

The required documentation depends on the wastewater (industrial wastewater, commercial wastewater) that is to be discharged into the private wastewater plant.

In any case, the following is required:

  • Application for exemption with details of the waste water (type / quantity / ingredients / place of origin)
  • Contractual provisions (excerpts if applicable)

An administrative fee must be paid to the respective federal state for the administrative performance of the permit. The administration fee is based on the respective state law provisions on the administrative fees.

The application must be submitted at an early stage, as a discharge of waste water into a private wastewater plant may only take place with an exemption from the permit requirement.

The processing time depends on the quality and scope of the applications and documents submitted.

The description and execution of the individual forms varies from one federal state to another. Generally formulated, there are application forms, checklists and information sheets as declarations or forms.
