Wasterwater Legal Standards to Double: Are You Prepared?

Wastewater is a serious concern for many up and down the country, and with new efforts and initiatives being launched seemingly every day to try and ensure we have a cleaner, greener tomorrow, it’s a topic at the forefront of the minds of many. Seemingly though, conditions and improvements in some places still aren’t quite up to the standards we need to achieve all our environmental objectives; and as such, by 2015, Wastewater legal standards are set to double. The big question is, are you ready for such a change, and what can you do about it right now?

The news comes after a water company in Sussex stated that ‘significant improvements’ need to occur in order to keep the seas clean. With a 25 year plan in place that sees the county achieving ‘Blue Flag’ status for its beaches – the highest possible status – there’s a significant amount of work to be done to turn everything around.

A spokeswoman for that company commented “Wastewater discharges to bathing waters already have to meet high standards. From 2015 the legal standards will be around twice as high as they are now.” Whilst this news is focused on bathing waters as a priority, the wastewater output of the entire country is consistently under scrutiny, more so with each passing week, and as a result, now is the best time to ensure you don’t need to be worrying about your wastewater processes at the last minute!
