Service Description

If you want to discharge commercial/industrial wastewater into a public wastewater facility or sewer system, you usually need a permit.

If you want to discharge wastewater into a public wastewater system, you need a permit. Under certain conditions, the permit requirement does not apply.

For certain industries and activities (such as 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 wastewater treatment plant. Requirements for this are specified in the industry-specific annexes to the Wastewater Ordinance.

To meet these requirements, special measures and wastewater pretreatment facilities are needed to reduce the pollutant load so that the wastewater can then be treated without harm in a public wastewater treatment plant.
