Wastewater: Construction of plants - Permit Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

For the construction and operation of a wastewater plant as well as its significant modification, depending on the size and type of the plant, you also need a water law plant permit in addition to the water discharge permit or the indirect discharge permit (into the public sewerage). This is usually included in the discharge permit. If a water permit is issued, an additional building permit is no longer required.

As a rule, the following are required: - Letter of application - the plans and documents drawn up by a competent person - landscape conservation accompanying plan, each in quadruple copy. The water authority may request further documents. If an environmental impact assessment is to be carried out for the approval of the plant, an additional environmental impact study is required.

Anyone who is obliged (and entitled) to build and operate a wastewater plant depends on the wastewater disposal obligation. In principle, this lies with the district-free cities, the non-affiliated municipalities and the association municipalities, which have to properly dispose of the waste water generated in their territory; in principle, they must build and operate the necessary facilities and facilities for this purpose. In the case of the disposal of individual properties in the outdoor area or from commercial enterprises or plants, the obligation to dispose of wastewater can be transferred to the beneficial owners or the commercial operation or the operator of the plant at the request of the municipality subject to wastewater disposal. In these cases, the new responsible persons may then have to build their own wastewater plants in coordination with the municipality subject to wastewater disposal before discharge into the public sewage system, for which a water permit is then required. Which plants are exempt from approval is determined by the State Water Act. If the wastewater plant belongs to a higher-level plant to be approved in accordance with the BImSchG, the water law concerns are taken into account in the BImSch permit. However, this does not apply if a water permit is required, which includes the water law plant permit. The documents and plans for the permit application must be drawn up by a competent person within the meaning of the State Water Act who is entered in a list maintained by the Rhineland-Palatinate Chamber of Engineers or a register kept there. The entry in a comparable list of another federal state also applies in Rhineland-Palatinate. This does not apply to projects of local authorities (with the exception of local municipalities) if the plans and documents have been drawn up by competent members of the administration. In the case of waste water plants designed for organically contaminated waste water of 120 kg per day or more of biochemical oxygen demand in five days (raw) or for inorganically contaminated wastewater of 10 m³ or more in 2 hours (excluding cooling water), at least a preliminary assessment of the individual case is required to carry out an environmental impact assessment.
