Display of drinking water systems and domestic wells


As the operator of a water supply system, you are obliged to register it. Furthermore, as the operator of a building water supply system, you are obliged to register a non-drinking water system operated in the same building.

In order to ensure drinking water quality, the water used for drinking water supply must be tested for impurities at regular intervals.

In order to determine the necessary investigations and the inspection intervals, you must notify your responsible health authority of the (re)commissioning, construction, significant structural or operational changes or the transfer of ownership in relation to water supply systems.

The health department will then contact you about an on-site inspection.
