Waste Discharge Analysis / Trade Effluent

Waste Discharge Analysis / Trade Effluent

The Water Industry Act 1991 requires that any liquid produced by your company as part of its business activity on trading premises which is discharged into the public sewage system requires consent from the local sewage waste undertakers (waste water utility company).
