Description
Load entering UWWTP (p.e.): 
load expressed in population equivalent shall be calculated on the basis of the maximum average weekly load entering the treatment plant during the year, excluding unusual situations such as those due to heavy rain (Article 4 of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive 91/271/CE)

Remarks: 
TP has only preliminary treatment."uwwPrimaryTreatment" It was filled with "primary treatment" because there is no option for preliminary treatment.The effluent is released into the sea by outfall. The plant should start operating with primary treatment from 2020
Forward looking aspect
Identified reason(s) for non compliance: 
ETAR apenas com tratamento preliminar, que é isuficiente face à legislação em vigor. Em 2014 não cumpriu relativamente aos parâmetros CBO5 e CQO.
Measure(s) to reach the compliance needed for UWWTP: 
Remodelação da ETAR com implementação de tratamento primário (compatível com o meio recetor - menos sensível).
