In 2018, Hungary had 598 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 13 690 893 p.e. 87% of this load is connected to collecting systems and 9% addressed through Individual and Appropriate Systems (storage or septic tanks, micro-stations,...). These agglomerations are connected to 3 secondary treatment plants and 602 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 14 856 578 p.e.
