For certain businesses, the discharge of treated effluent, into the canal, dock and river networks provides an attractive, cost effective alternative to discharging into the public sewerage network.

Subject to approval by the Environment Agency, Peel Water can offer an alternative route of disposal.

Our effluent discharge service is currently used by a wide range of businesses along our canal and dock networks including:


Power generation

Chemical manufacturing

Paper manufacturing

Commercial offices


The discharge of treated effluent into the canal or dock network can provide a stable, long-term sustainable solution for your business' effluent disposal requirements.
