Applying for exemption from wastewater system renovation

You can apply for an exemption from the deadline for renovating your property-specific wastewater system. An exemption only needs to be applied for if the system does not comply with the requirements of the Environmental Protection Act and the building is located less than 100 metres from a water system or in an important groundwater area. In other areas, there is no need to renovate the wastewater system until a flush toilet is built or a full renovation is made.
