Wastewater disposal; application for a permit to discharge wastewater into the public wastewater system

If you wish to discharge commercial/industrial wastewater into a public wastewater system or sewer system, you generally require a permit.



Approval may only be granted if

  • the requirements of the Waste Water Ordinance applicable to the waste water are complied with,
  • the public sewage treatment plant can adequately purify the wastewater and
  • the wastewater is pre-treated by the discharging company in such a way that the above requirements are met.


  • You can apply for a permit to discharge wastewater into public wastewater systems at the responsible office.
  • You fill out the application form and submit it with all the necessary documents.
  • The competent authority will check your application.
  • If all the necessary requirements are met, your application can be approved.
  • You will receive a permit to discharge wastewater into public wastewater facilities.

Special notes

The discharge of collected precipitation water directly into a surface water body and the infiltration of precipitation water require a permit under water law (direct discharge permit).


Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the responsible office.

Required documents

  • The documents required depend on the wastewater (for example, industrial wastewater or commercial wastewater) that is to be discharged into the public wastewater system. More detailed information can be obtained from the responsible office.

    If applicable:

    • Information on the production of the discharging plant
