The Sewerage Act

The sewerage act is the legal framework for all local authorities to establish a public water and sewage system. It contains a number of provisions, including the power to grant licences to sanitary constructors and the recovery of expenses incurred for such works. Other provisions include penalties for misdemeanours under the Water Act, and the Public water supply and sewerage system in the administrative territories of certain local governments. This article outlines the main responsibilities of the authorities and sets out the duties and powers they may exercise under the act.

Power to grant licences to sanitary constructors

The power to grant licences to sanitary constructor is a powerful one. The authority is required to prepare plans and designs, as well as estimates for any proposed construction project. This power can be exercised by the authority to construct additions to existing facilities or improvements and extensions to the sewerage system. It also gives the authority the power to operate and control the existing sewer system as a comprehensive sewerage system. This authority has all rights to carry out any development or improvement that will further enhance the quality of the sewerage system.

The authority has the power to grant licences to sanitary constructor, provided that it is able to manage the community sewerage system in an efficient manner. Moreover, under section 7-246, the municipality has the right to require the sanitary constructor to manage community sewerage systems if it fails to meet the requirements of the Act. The municipality must also own the community sewerage system.

Power to recover expenses incurred in such works

The Power to recover expenses incurred in sewerage projects is a special statute that grants a municipality the power to charge a user for the services they perform. The Legislature has decided to give municipalities the right to charge a user a sewer service charge if they fail to make payments. The law also gives municipalities the power to increase the fees charged by sewer service providers without the consent of the user. However, the process may be slow if the sewer service provider refuses to pay.

Penalties for misdemeanours in the Water Act

The Water Act is a law that regulates the waters of the United States. It criminalizes dumping debris and waste into waterways, and covers public and private waterways protected by state or federal laws. Penalties for water quality violations are varied and can range from a fine of up to $25,000 per day to a maximum of three years in prison and up to $50,000 per day.

The Clean Water Act has a remarkably broad scope, enabling the EPA and DOJ to pursue extremely severe criminal punishments against those responsible for environmental pollution. The act also allows for fines and prison time that are more in line with the level of culpability – a step forward, though still far from perfect – and the potential to protect waterbodies is considerable.

Public water supply and sewerage system in the administrative territories of several local governments

The rules governing connection to the public water supply and sewerage system define the area that is a supply point. A public water supply and sewerage development plan must comply with the water management plan of the river basin, which must be coordinated with the Environmental Board and the Health Board. Public water supply and sewerage development plans must also consider the environmental impact of the proposed projects. The process for connection to the public water supply and sewerage system in an administrative territory begins with the identification of the area and its population size.

The local government may own or have an interest in the public water supply and sewerage system. If not, it must conduct public procurements to find an appropriate water undertaking to operate the system. The public procurement process proceeds from the Public Procurement Act. A water undertaking is appointed by local government councils on the basis of the results of the public procurement. The results of the public procurement process are published in the local newspaper, known as Ametlikud Teadaanded.
