Draft PPS18: Renewable Energy
Annex 1 Energy from Waste (Thermal Processes) Planning Issues: Emissions to Water
Water may be affected by certain liquid effluents created by particular processes. The main sources of liquid effluent will be from gas cleaning systems, cooling water and surface run off. EHS has responsibility for the control of water quality. The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development’s Rivers Agency will need to be consulted if it is proposed that river water is used for cooling.
