In 2016, Czech Republic had 648 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 9 355 394 p.e. 94% of this load is connected to collecting systems and 6% addressed through Individual and Appropriate Systems (storage or septic tanks, micro-stations,...). These agglomerations are connected to 2 primary treatment plant, 82 secondary treatment plants and 528 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 15 459 472 p.e.
