Why is wastewater fee splitting necessary?

The wastewater charges are no longer valid under the current law. The ruling of the Federal Administrative court, which is dated on 25.03.1985 (AZ: BVerwG 8 B 11.84) and the ruling of the Upper Administrative court of Münster which dated on 05.08.1994 (AZ: 9 A 1248/92) and decisions of administrative courts in single states play here a decisive role.

The aim of wastewater fee splitting is to get safe charges and legal certainty.

Property owners are encouraged to reduce sealed areas and by the way to reduce the amount of precipitation water in the sewerage network.

In addition to reduce the loading of the sewerage network, some environmental benefits can be found such as the reducing of ground water extraction and pollution of water.
