Sewage Treatment System Legislation

Current practice concerning septic tanks involves the issuing of discharge permits by local authorities. However, with many authorities deeming septic tanks insufficient when it comes to the quality of effluent cleansing, and it is likely that national legislation will be introduced in 2020 rendering all septic tanks unfit for discharging into a watercourse and meaning that many properties will require support from Retrofit systems or complete replacement with a small sewage treatment plant.

Small domestic sewage discharges from septic tanks, cess pits and small sewage treatment plants will soon need to be registered under the new legislation. In order to help our customers to understand this legislation; you will not need to register providing your:

  • discharge is to ground and is of 2 cubic metres per day or less via a septic tank and infiltration system (soakaway) and is outside a source protection zone 1. (the equivalent of a 9-person occupancy.)
  • sewage is only domestic.
  • sewage system is maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and you keep a record of all maintenance. In the case of septic tanks this includes regular emptying records.
  • discharge does not cause pollution of surface water or groundwater.
