Waste water treatment is designed to process waste water whilst protecting the environment and maintaining public health. Outfalls to the marine environment fall into three categories:

  1. outfalls from waste water treatment (WWT) plants which process waste water from the mains sewerage system  (this layer);
  2. industrial sites which take waste from manufacturing plants (see separate layer - Industrial (SPRI) marine discharges); and
  3. some private domestic sources (not on NMPi).

These categories of outfall also discharge to the riverine freshwater environment which eventually reach the sea.
