If you’re planning to discharge wastewater from a production process, you are likely to need a consent – See guidance below. This includes anything other than domestic sewage (from toilets, sinks, showers), uncontaminated surface water or rainwater. Foodservice sites don’t need a discharge consent – Measures must be in place to prevent oils, fats, greases and food waste from entering the drain.
