We are responsible for the supervisory guidance of small-scale wastewater treatment systems, in other words systems for up to 200 persons. Our guidance is aimed at authorities dealing with supervision and supervisory guidance.
We do not decide how other authorities are to act in individual cases. We also do not provide advice to property owners as to which wastewater treatment solution they should choose. Property owners who are dissatisfied with a municipal decision are to appeal to the county administrative board.
The Swedish Environmental Protection Agency advises county administrative boards, municipalities, and plant operators on sewage sludge and treatment facilities designed for more than 200 people.
