LICENSING OF ACTIVITIES AND OPERATORS WHICH DISPOSE OF LIQUID INDUSTRIAL WASTE AND WASTEWATER IN THE EYATH S.A. SEWERAGE NETWORK

Special Regulations on the Operation of the Sewerage Network

With the aim of protecting and ensuring the smooth operation of EYATH S.A. sewerage networks and wastewater treatment facilities, and guided by the main principle of protecting human health and the environment, EYATH S.A. has drawn up Special Regulations on the Operation of the Sewerage Network.

The Regulations set out the terms and conditions imposed on professional, industrial activities (small-scale and large-scale), educational institutions (legal entities governed by public law), laboratories, etc., and any kind of activity or operator which may produce liquid waste, other than residential homes, with regard to the disposal of liquid waste in the EYATH S.A. sewerage network.

The Regulations were approved by decision no. 1836/2018 – Government Gazette 1793 B/21.5.2018.

Who they apply to

The procedure for Disposal Plan Inspection and Licensing for the Disposal of Liquid Waste applies to professional, industrial activities (small-scale and large-scale), educational institutions (legal entities governed by public law), laboratories, etc., and any kind of activity or operator which may produce liquid waste, other than residential homes, with regard to the disposal of liquid waste in the EYATH S.A. sewerage network. The Regulations cover EYATH S.A.’s entire remit, as defined in Article 26 of Law 2937/2001 (Government Gazette 169/A/26.7.2001) and any amendments thereto.

Professional activities which do not generate liquid industrial waste during the production process, but only residential wastewater, are granted a licence to directly dispose of such waste in the sewerage network.

Businesses are divided into the following four (4) categories:

Category Α: Professional activities that do not generate liquid industrial waste during the production process, but only residential wastewater.

Category Β: Professional activities with a liquid industrial waste volume of V<2m3/day. The following are excluded: a) car washes, laundry and carpet cleaners coming under category D, and b) professional activities involving production processes such as metal plating works, tanneries, chemical industries and pharmaceutical industries coming under category C, regardless of waste volume.

Category C: Professional activities with a liquid industrial waste volume of V<2m3/day. Category C also includes – irrespective of supply – gold and silversmiths, laboratories processing metals and precious stones, as well as dental laboratories.

Category D: Special activities with moderate pollution owed mainly to the use of detergents (car washes, laundry and carpet cleaners), regardless of the V value of the volume of liquid waste.
