Apply for exemption from the permit requirement for discharging wastewater into private wastewater systems

Description

If you wish to discharge wastewater into a private wastewater treatment plant, you can be exempted from the requirement to obtain a wastewater discharge permit under certain conditions.

For certain industries and activities (such as the chemical industry, paper production, metal processing, cooling water use), pollutants are to be expected in the wastewater that are not sufficiently purified in a municipal sewage treatment plant. Requirements for this are set out in the sector-specific annexes to the Waste Water Ordinance.

In order to comply with these requirements, special measures and wastewater pre-treatment plants are required to reduce the pollutant load so that the wastewater can then be purified without harm in a public or private wastewater treatment plant.

You can be exempted from the permit requirement for discharging wastewater into a private wastewater treatment plant if you ensure compliance with the legal requirements by means of a contract with the operator of the private wastewater treatment plant.

The required documents depend on the wastewater (industrial wastewater, commercial wastewater) that is to be discharged into the private wastewater system.

  • Application
  • Contractual regulations between the person discharging the wastewater and the operator of the private wastewater treatment plant

Contact the water authority in your district or city.

  • You complete the application documents and submit them to the responsible office together with all the necessary documents.
  • The responsible office will check your application.
  • If all the necessary requirements are met, your application will be approved.
  • You will receive an exemption from the permit requirement for discharging wastewater into private wastewater systems.
