Septic Tank Permit Changes(January 07, 2015)
News: The UK Environment Agency are reviewing and revising the conditions of existing permits for discharge of septic tanks to watercourses. Taken from their December 2014 correspondence "As a result of the pollution problems we need these properties which discharge from a septic tank to watercourses to upgrade their sewage treatment"
In the past, if you had an old existing Consent to Discharge, it was automatically transferred to a valid Permit , but this is no longer the case. Be warned.
