In 2014, United Kingdom had 1820 urban waste water agglomerations of more then 2 000 population equivalent (p.e). These agglomerations generated a total load of 70 882 026 p.e. 99 % of this load is connected to collecting systems and 1 % addressed through Individual and Appropriate Systems (storage or septic tanks, micro-stations,...). These agglomerations are connected to 0 primary treatment plant, 1147 secondary treatment plants and 698 more stringent treatment plants. All these treatment plants have a total design capacity of 90 609 320 p.e.
