What documents will I need to get a permit for a cesspit, approx. 8 m3; will I have to deal with the water authority?
In many cases, cesspit reservoirs can only be notified at the building authority. The reservoir should be certified. It is assumed that waste water will be taken out and disposed of at the waste water treatment plant, so there is no need to ask for a permit allowing for releasing waste water at the water authority. You will need a ground plan of the construction, its situation on the land plot, data regarding the builder, documents proving ownership or utilization rights to the land, all that for the notification. The building authority will specify any eventual documents needed for the building approval. It is also necessary to take into account the need to take out the contents of the reservoir, so make sure the access paths are provided.

Is it possible to use soakage galleries by a family house, e.g. for a tank collecting rainwater? It happened several times that it was full and water from the spouts rose up to the surface.
In general, we can say this use of WATGAL gallery is ideal. However, it is necessary to assess the geological subsoil to find out if the water is about to soak in. The size of the tank will then be determined based on this finding in order to prevent overfilling.
