Waste Water

 

Westmeath County Council currently operates and maintains 23 waste water treatment plants, with the foul sewer network collecting effluent from approximately 14,800 premises in the County.

Monitoring of the treated effluent from the plants in 2014 showed substantial compliance with the requirements of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive and the conditions of the Discharge Licences and Certificates of Authorisation issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Discharge Licences

Waste Water Discharge (Authorisation) Regulations 2007 require that most treatment plants must operate under a licence from the EPA.

Details of Westmeath County Council waste water discharge licences can be viewed on the EPA website:
