In the technical sense, an urbanized area equipped with a community sanitation system consisting of one or several wastewater collecting systems (sewers) and one or more wastewater treatment plants, forming a coherent sewerage system. Under the meaning of the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, an area where the population and/or economic activities are sufficiently concentrated to make it possible to collect urban wastewater for delivery to a wastewater treatment system or final discharge point. The general code of local governments plans to designate such an urban agglomeration as a sewerage agglomeration.
