Wastewater: Small sewage treatment plants

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Whether and where wastewater disposal is to be carried out by small sewage treatment plants is determined by the municipalities in their wastewater statutes for individual properties or for certain parts of the municipal area. In these cases, the obligation to dispose of waste water is transferred from the municipality to the property owner.

The small sewage treatment plant operator must apply for a discharge permit under water law from the competent authority.

However, the municipality is still responsible for the removal of the sludge produced in the small sewage treatment plants.
