Comments There are about 818 thousand households and about 185 thousands of economically active companies in Latvia, whose activity generates both domestic and industrial wastewater every day. It is therefore essential that both domestic and industrial wastewater is properly treated in all centralized (urban and rural) as well as individual wastewater treatment plants before it enters open water or soil. The audit findings prove that there are still unresolved issues and much remains to be done in wastewater discharge and treatment. Several problems identified such as storm-water drainage, the use of sludge, low number of connections to district sewerage systems, and management of decentralized sewerage systems have been known for many years. Despite the fact that one has invested one billion euros in the improvement of district sewerage systems in wastewater management, the solution to those problems is still relevant.
