This is a polygon dataset of the waste water treatment plants catchment areas in agglomerations (towns/cities) with a population equivalent of over 500.
Urban waste-water is the liquid wastes deriving from domestic, commercial and industrial activities of an urban settlement. (Source RRDA). The boundaries are up-to-date based on the maps provided in the EPA's Waste Water Discharge Applications as of 05/05/2017.
All discharges to the aquatic environment from sewerage systems owned, managed and operated by water service authorities will require a waste water discharge licence or certificate of authorisation from the EPA. This dataset shows the extent of the agglomeration boundaries submitted by the licensee via their Waste Water Discharge Applications (WWDA) to the EPA.
