Treatment Plant Permit

We can help you apply for a treatment plant permit from the Environment Agency if you need to apply in order to discharge effluent into a surface water system or to groundwater. In order to apply for either a standard rules or bespoke environmental permit from the EnvironmentAgency you will need to complete a number of risk assessments and feasibility studies in order to ensure that the application will be “duly Made”.

We have successfully applied and obtained effluent treatment permits for a number of clients. This has included groundwater monitoring for discharges to groundwater as well as surface water modelling for dispersion for discharges to surface water.

Permits to discharge to surface water are straight forward. Permits for discharging to groundwater tend to be more complex. For the latter you will need to complete a groundwater risk assessment.

Paul helped us with a waste permit transfer to our operations from another waste management company when we took over a neighbouring site. The transfer went smoothly and I would recommend Paul's services in dealing with the Environment Agency.
