Waste Water

Westmeath County Council currently operates and maintains 24 waste water schemes, serving over 8,000 premises in the County.

Each scheme generally consists of a sewer network which collects waste water from premises and conveys it to a treatment plant. When the waste water is treated to the required standard the treated effluent is discharged to the environment.  The standard of treatment is dictated by the Urban Waste Water Regulations 2001 and 2004.  The Waste Water Discharge Authorisation Regulation 2007 require that most treatment plants must operate under a licence from the EPA.

Discharge Licences
