What are the distances to respect in France?
This standard was introduced to prevent all dysfunction of wastewater treatment and avoid all problems when the system is running.
This is all the distances to respect for an individual treatment system:
- The system must be installed at least 5 meters away from any construction.
- Must be installed at least 3 meters away from the property limit.
- Keep the plants and trees 3 meters away from the system.
- If the property has a well or any water collection system, it must be at a minimal distance of 35 meters of the wastewater treatment system.
- The system must be installed 5 meters away of any area where a vehicle can be parked.
The distance can be reduced in some cases, but this case must be justified. The best is to ask a consultancy office or “Bureau d’étude” in French to find a more suitable solution for each situation.
For more information about distances, you can read the standard DTU 64.1. It is the technical document of reference for all professionals.
Is it possible to derogate from this rule?
Although these minimum distances to be maintained are legal and must be scrupulously respected, there is still derogation from the rule. In fact, in some cases, the non-respect of distances can be allowed. Nevertheless, this tolerance is limited, and the owner must justify his intention to not maintain the usual distances. For example, we can justify the presence of a system which produces drinkable water for less than 35 meters of a well. Other distances can be justified as in the preceding example. To avoid non-compliance, the best is to contact an organisation as the SPANC which can advise you. Likewise, it is strongly recommended to entrust all installation or rehabilitation work to professionals.
