Domestic Waste Water Treatment Systems
Domestic Waste Water Treatment Systems (Including Septic Tanks)
County Sligo has approximately 10,000 Domestic Waste Water Treatment Systems (DWWTS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Inspection Plan requires that Sligo County Council inspect 26 DWWTS over a twelve-month period from July 2013. The EPA will review the Inspection Plan in 2014 and it is anticipated that the inspection number will change.
Risk-based site inspections by registered and trained inspectors will begin in Co Sligo in September 2013.
Further information in relation to inspections and DWWTS can be obtained on the EPA website on the following link
