In 2016, Germany had 3927 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 111 906 058 p.e. 98% of this load is connected to collecting systems and 2% addressed through Individual and Appropriate Systems (storage or septic tanks, micro-stations,...). These agglomerations are connected to 235 secondary treatment plants and 3576 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 146 928 271 p.e.
