Service Description

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

If you want to discharge wastewater into a private wastewater system, you need a permit. Under certain conditions, the permit requirement does not apply. You apply for the permit at the responsible office.

Public wastewater plants are available to the general public, private ones to a restricted group of users, for example plants in a chemical park.

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 are specified for this 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 so that the wastewater can then be treated without harm in a public or private wastewater treatment plant.
