Discharge to Waters Licence Register

Local authorities maintain a public register of businesses which have a licence to discharge liquids or sewage to rivers, lakes and the sea.

Discharges to Surface Waters – Section 4 licences

Activities discharging wastewater directly to a river require a licence, in accordance with Section 4 of the Local Government (Water Pollution) Acts, 1977 – 2007. Before issuing a licence Carlow County Council must be satisfied that the wastewater is adequately treated and will not cause water pollution.
