Abstract

These Regulations implement Community legislation aiming at preventing and reducing the pollution of waters by waste water discharges (notably Directive 2006/11/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and Directive 2000/60/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council). They provide in relation to authorization by the Environmental Protection Agency of local authority waste water discharges. The Regulations require discharges from agglomerations with population equivalents greater than 500 to be licensed by the Agency and set out procedures for the making of licence applications, reviews of licences and the making of submissions. Discharges from agglomerations with a population equivalent below 500 are required to be certified by the EPA.
