Wastewater Discharge Authorisation for Local Authorities

The licensing and certification of wastewater discharges from areas served by local sewers was introduced in 2007 in accordance with the requirements of  the Waste Water Discharge (Authorisation) Regulations, 2007 (S.I. No. 684 of 2007).  These regulations require all discharges to the aquatic environment from sewerage systems, owned and operated by water service authorities to have a wastewater discharge licence or certificate authorised by the EPA.
