The scope of this document is to give an overview on the Danish practice for discharging sewage to the sea. It do not contain a formal summary of legislation and design criteria, but the intention of the paper is to explain the development and its background during the last 25 years in which period our practice gradually has arisen.

With basis in the University of Aalborg, Denmark, the author has been involved in research and design of sea outfalls since the beginning of the seventies. It is controversial to give examples of dis-functioning sea outfalls by name and it has therefore been avoided here and only the general experiences on this point are mentioned.
