Issues related to permitting of Special Water Use - Environmental

• Preparation and maintenance support of documentation for obtaining a Special Water Use Permit*, which is issued by the Departments of Ecology and Natural Resources of the regional state administrations of Ukraine; • Calculation of individual current standards (technological, balance sheet standards) of water consumption; • Help in execution of state statistical reporting forms: 7-gr (groundwater) and 2-TP (water industry); • Development of project of standards for maximum permissible discharges (MPD) of pollutants from reverse waters into water bodies.

Special Water Use Permit  is issued for up to 3 years – in the case when water users dumping polluted sewage water into the water bodies at levels that exceed  maximum allowable discharges of pollutants in it, which are set by the regional entities of Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine; from 3 up to 25 years – in all other cases.

Enterprises or individuals can use water for agricultural, industrial, household and recreational needs. Special water use includes all of the above kinds of water usage if:

- water is taken directly from water wells, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and not from centralised water supply systems;

- water is taken from centralised water supply systems but sanitation of sewage water is taking place into the river, stream or lake.

The permitting of “special water use” is governed mostly by two key pieces of legislation: the Water Code of Ukraine (article 49) (most recent version dated 01.01.2015), which has the status of a law, and Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 321 of 13.03.2002 “On the Procedure for Approval and Permitting of Special Water Use and amendments to the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 459 of 10.08.1992.

The indicative list of materials required for the development of documents for applying for a Special Water Use Permit:

 

 - a copy of company's EDRPOU reference;

 - a copy of the certificate of registration of the company or an extract from the Unified State Register;

- the actual dynamics of water consumption and outfall for the previous 3 years (copies of state statistical reports according to the form 2-TP (water industry) (if available);

 - copies of the results of analysis of groundwater quality;

 - copies of passports of artwells, mine or tubular wells;

 - in case of discharge of wastewater in urban sewerage – conditions for wastewater discharge into municipal sewers, in case of wastewater discharge into cesspool an agreement with the company on the export of household liquid runoff (HLR);

 - a copy of the letter concerning denial of permit issuance for special water use (if available);

 - a copy of the regulatory calculation of water consumption and outfall (if available);

 - a copy of the previous permit for special water use (if available);

 - a copy of the scheme of water supply and sanitation (if available).

PP “Tehnologia O” have a necessary approval to provide services relating to the development of project of standards for maximum permissible discharges (MPD) of pollutants from reverse water into water bodies (Wastewater discharge permit) (letter of The Research Institution Ukrainian Scientific Research Institute of Ecological Problems (USRIEP) dated 10.01.2014 No. 115m/01-06).

The indicative list of documents required for the development of Project of Standards of Maximum Permissible Discharge (MPD) of pollutants from reverse waters into water bodies:

- a copy of company's EDRPOU reference;

 - a copy of the certificate of registration of the company or an extract from the Unified State Register;

- a copy of the Annual Report according to the form 2-TP (water industry) per last year;

 - Situational scheme of wastewater release into water body;

 - a reference about the quality of surface waters of water receiver above the wastewater release in the background target;

 - copies of the results of chemical analysis of wastewaters and river water in control and background targets for the previous 3 years;

 - summary of the water supply system, outfall, water users who release in the sewage system;

 - scheme treatment facilities, a description of their work and data concerning technological regulation of treatment facilities.
