A Guide to the Water Pollution Control Ordinance

Conditions of a Licence
18. A licence will be granted with terms and conditions specifying requirements relevant to the discharge, e.g. the discharge location, provision of wastewater treatment facilities, maximum allowable quantity, effluent standards, self-monitoring requirements and keeping records. In determining the effluent standards, DEP makes reference to the Technical Memorandum and considers the need to protect the drainage or sewerage system, the health and safety of the operation and maintenance staff or the receiving waters. A discharge should be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of a licence. Authorised officers may carry out inspections to ensure the compliance of the discharge.
