In 2018, Germany had 3913 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 111 254 546 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 230 secondary treatment plants and 3566 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 147 063 653 p.e.
