Wastewater fee Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Wastewater charges are charged for the disposal of dirty and rainwater.

The wastewater fee is to be paid continuously for the service provided (discharge and purification of the wastewater). It concerns the costs of removing waste water and rainwater.

Wastewater charges are levied on the basis of municipal statutes. The height varies locally.

If the wastewater fee is split into a wastewater and a rainwater fee under the statutes, the precipitation water fee is essentially based on the sealed land area. In addition, many associations charge a basic fee to cover consumption-independent costs.


In contrast to the wastewater fee, the wastewater contribution is to be paid once. With the wastewater contribution, you as the property owner pay a share of the costs for the production or improvement of the overall systems of the municipality or the wastewater association.
