Handling of water-hazardous substances Display

Plants for the handling of water-hazardous substances (e.g. the storage of heating oil, gasoline, manure) are a source of danger for water and soil due to the risk potential.

Anyone wishing to install, set up, operate, decommission or recommission plants for the handling of water-hazardous substances within the meaning of Section 62 of the Water Budget Act (WHG) must notify their project in good time before the start of the measure. Significant changes to the operation are also subject to notification.

If the project requires other public regulations (e.g. approval under the BImSchG), a notification according to AwSV is not required.
