My name is Nicholas Grennan and I am a Master student of Civil Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. For my masters thesis I am Assessing the Energy Recovery Potential from Wastewater Treatment Plants Across Europe using Micro Hydropower Technology.

For this I need to gather as much possible data sets for outlet head, flow(discharge) and population serviced for a range of Wastewater Treatment plants in various countries. Im aware EU countries by law publish their discharge data to the public but I was wondering would you be able to provide or direct me towards this data as given the stage I am at now it is crucial for me to compile greater amounts of data.

Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciate.

Kind regards,
Nicholas Grennan

Dear M. Nicholas Greenan,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

We would suggest you to consult the EEA webpage on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWT) where you will find links to the UWWT map, that provides the most recent information on the implementation of the UWWT Directive in the EU-28 and Iceland, as well as data viewers and data sources. Please see:[…]/uwwtd .

You might also find some relevant information under the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register at Choose the sector 5 'Waste and waste water management' and Activity 5f 'Urban waste-water treatment plants'.

We hope that this may be useful for you and wish you all the best in your research.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
