Our water pollution control officers …

... see themselves as part of your continuous improvement process for water pollution control. They have the expertise needed to promptly and effectively take all planned measures to ensure environmentally friendly production processes.

Corporate water pollution control mainly covers two areas:

  • Water pollution control when discharging wastewater
  • Water pollutant handling in production plants

We can differentiate further between:

  • Direct and indirect discharge of wastewater
  • Discharge of wastewater after treatment in an on-site wastewater treatment plant
  • Discharge of wastewater after pretreatment in external plants

Clean water: legal aspects

Water pollution control law can be a complex, confusing area for companies to navigate

Water pollution control now plays a significantly more important role in the debate about climate change and resource conservation. The European Union has further highlighted its role with stricter legislation.

Germany’s federal legislation includes the Clean Water Act (WHG), the Groundwater Regulation (GrwV), the Wastewater Regulation (AbwV) and the Regulation for Installations Handling Substances Hazardous to Water (AwSV), among others. The Wastewater Charges Act (AbwAG) also lays out the levies that must be paid when discharging water that contains certain pollutants.

Water law is complicated because

  • EU, federal and state regulations can overlap
  • All the laws and regulations are regularly updated
  • Some provisions may not apply to certain company sizes, industries, plants or locations

That confronts corporate environmental protection officers with a major challenge,

  • To keep up with changes and updates to EU, federal and state legislation
  • To handle vast amounts of red tape
  • To avoid fines or penalties for missing compliance deadlines

In short, companies have to stay on the ball with water pollution control and regulatory requirements. This requires dedicated staffing, substantial costs and extensive administrative effort.
