Why is it Important to Maintain Your Wastewater System?

In the UK it is a legal obligation for the owner of any property which discharges its wastewater to a Package Sewage Treatment Plant to ensure that the system is within its discharge consent. The current laws and legislation include:

  • The Public Health Act 1936
  • The Land Drainage Acts 1991 & 1994
  • Water Resources Act 1991
  • UK Governing Bodies Land Drainage Byelaws

At the time of installation the property owner will have been granted "Consent to Discharge" by the local water authority. This consent is in effect a licence to discharge the outfall from your sewage treatment plant to your localised National Water Course.

If the system is failing to meet this consent it can be pursued by the governing bodies - Environment Agency for England and Wales, SEPA for Scotland and NIEH for Northern Ireland.
