A Review of the Effectiveness of Mogden Formula Charging when Meeting Modern Sewage Treatment Works Consents
The project investigated potential disparities between the current trade effluent charging mechanism (the Mogden formula) and the costs associated with trade effluent management and treatment. The study demonstrated that the Mogden formula continues to serve the purpose of equitably charging for the reception and treatment of trade effluents. Strong evidence supports the view that the approach to charging for ammonia should be reviewed by the Water and Sewerage Companies to ensure investment cost recovery in the future. There is also a potential future need to charge for the acceptance of trade effluent containing zinc.
Other issues addressed in this study include the accurate apportionment of charges where multiple substances are removed, sludge treatment cost recovery, the management of carbon footprint related costs and options for the risk management of accepting non-biodegradable Chemical Oxygen Demand from traders.
