Water control

Water control includes the enforcement and monitoring of necessary measures

  • to improve the situation of waters as part of the natural budget,
  • to reduce the input of substances into water bodies,
  • for the elimination of water pollution and
  • to prevent future possible stresses.

The powers of action of the competent authority are standardised in Sections 100 and 101 of the Law on the Order of the Water Household (WHG) and in Section 128 of the Lower Saxony Water Act (NWG).
