Summary: Proposed Guidance on the Authorisation of Direct Discharges to Groundwater
The Agency has prepared Guidance on the Authorisation of Direct Discharges to Groundwater. This proposed guidance addresses direct discharges to groundwater from point sources that may have the potential to cause pollution. It supplements the earlier report published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) entitled “Guidance on the Authorisation of Discharges to Groundwater” (EPA, 2011) which focused on the technical assessment of indirect discharges to groundwater.
This Guidance has the following primary objectives:
Whereas the first two objectives deal with direct discharges in a general sense, the last objective examines direct discharges of domestic-type wastewater effluent in greater detail.
We would welcome your feedback and observations by Monday 10th February, 2014.
