Seminar Overview

The Water Services (Amendment) Act 2012 was introduced in response to Ireland’s non-compliance with EU legislation in relation to the treatment of wastewater from septic tanks and other on-site wastewater treatment systems. The registration and inspection system is designed to protect ground and surface water from the risks posed by malfunctioning systems.

What will the Septic Tank Inspection Regime entail? Who will be competent to carry out inspections and what are the risks and responsibilities? How will compliance with EN 12566 be ensured and what does it entail? How will maintenance be best carried out? What types of professional insurance will be required?

Seminar Aim

The aim of the seminar is to establish guidelines for best practice in the treatment and disposal of onsite wastewater, identify the roles and responsibilities of the key stakeholders, clarify any misunderstandings and provide a forum for knowledge sharing.
