The way in which we treat waste water, sewage and effluent is covered by our Waste Local Plan.
Waste water and sewage is a distinct waste group. Every individual and business produces waste water, most of which has to be treated before it can be released back into the environment.
Responsibility for the provision of sewage treatment facilities and infrastructure in Nottinghamshire lies with three water companies.
The majority of the County is served by Severn Trent Water Ltd, but in the east there is an area covered by Anglian Water Ltd, and in the north west, an area covered by Yorkshire Water Ltd.
If you have concerns about a watercourse being affected by environmental pollution, such as possible illegal disposal, please contact the Environment Agency Hotline.
