Water pollution licences

Where a facility discharges trade effluent to waters a section 4 licence is required under the Local Government (Water Pollution) Act 1977 - 1990. Where a facility discharges trade effluent to a sewer network, a section 16 licence is required under the acts mentioned above. These licenced facilities are inspected by environmental staff to ensure compliance with licence conditions. After an inspection all facilities are issued with an inspection report. Where there is non-compliance this is highlighted in the report and the facility is required to submit plans for remedial works. Where there is a failure to do this or the non-compliance is on-going, enforcement action is taken against that facility. The EPA is responsible for licensing of larger facilities, by way of integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC).
