Wastewater: Drainage permit Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

If you want to connect your property to the public sewage system, you need a drainage permit.

A drainage permit is required for connection to the public sewage system and its use. Changes to the property drainage system, to the wastewater conditions on which the drainage permit is based or to the connection to the sewage system require a change permit.

For the disposal of rainwater via the municipal sewage system, the drainage permit is also required.

In their drainage statutes, the municipalities have laid down discharge conditions for the waste water in order to ensure the proper operation of the sewage system and the sewage treatment plant. Commercial or industrial waste water from certain areas of origin (e.B car laundry) may only be discharged due to harmful ingredients if special water law requirements are met. When the drainage permit is issued, it is also decided whether pre-treatment of the waste water is required, especially in the industrial and commercial sector.


Further information on water management and an address overview of the authorities specifically responsible for this purpose can be found in the state portal "Agriculture and Environment Schleswig-Holstein".
