Guidelines for risk assessment of wastewater discharges to waterways

These guidelines provide information on what is expected from practitioners conducting wastewater discharge risk assessments. This includes the risk assessment framework and guidance on its implementation. It is based on current, nationally and internationally accepted risk assessment approaches. The framework ensures all potential risks can be clearly identified and appropriately assessed. It also enables the required interactions between technical experts, risk managers and interested stakeholders. Three pilot applications were conducted during the development of these guidelines and these are included in the document to provide practical examples of the implementation of the risk assessment process for wastewater discharges.
