The fields in this entity contain data about the volume of wastewater.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All higher education providers (HEPs).


The volume, measured in m3, of wastewater.

Where possible, data should be sub-divided to reflect the residential and non-residential estate. It is recognised that HEPs in Scotland will not be able to sub-divide Non-residential volume of wastewater and Residential volume of wastewater. Where this subdivision is not available, the Total volume of wastewater should be provided.

Charges for the treatment of wastewater are usually based on a figure derived from a percentage of the total water consumption. Utilities typically apply a factor of 90-95% to calculate wastewater costs based on water consumption.

To provide a figure for wastewater volume, HEPs should use the following data sources:

  • meter readings from all meters on site related to wastewater volume and trade effluent,
  • if the water utility contracted by the HEP provides a factor to calculate the wastewater volume based on the water supply volume, use the factor provided by the water utility. Otherwise, water consumption figures returned under Water consumption can be multiplied by 95% (as a default value).
