In 2014, Germany had 3951 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 109 232 961 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 0 primary treatment plant, 271 secondary treatment plants and 3559 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 146 224 508 p.e.
