In 2016, Hungary had 591 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 13 588 976 p.e. 86% of this load is connected to collecting systems and 10% addressed through Individual and Appropriate Systems (storage or septic tanks, micro-stations,...). These agglomerations are connected to 0 secondary treatment plants and 599 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 14 851 978 p.e.
