|Polish term or phrase: pozwolenie wodno-prawne|
|no context available; text on waste-water treatment plants|
|water supply and sewage effluent disposal consent / water use licence|
In Polish texts, the phrase "water supply and sewage effluent disposal consent" is used and it might be appropriate in the case of a wastewater treatment plant ("discharge consent" is another useful term"). However, "pozwolenie wodno-prawne" concerns more than just sewage:
Pozwolenie wodno prawne jest to decyzja administracyjna stanowiąca zezwolenia na:
· szczególne korzystanie z wód
· wykonanie urządzenia wodnego
· eksploatacje urządzeń wodnych
so depending on the context a more general term ("water use licence / approval / authorization") could be better.

In legal context,
POZWOLENIE PRAWNE = PERMISSION, CONSENT, LICENCE, PERMIT
(Dictionary of Legal Terms)
I would say, that in your context the best option is:
A new water licence trading scheme in Western Australia, designed to put the needs of the environment first, will also encourage customers to voluntarily cut back on water use, according to World Water magazine.
the terms of its water licence, the Town of Iqaluit must produce a waste management plan that includes items such as the elimination of the open burning of garbage, waste reduction and recycling
