Apply for the inclusion of a body of water or a section of water in the list of waters that regularly dry up


You can indicate as regularly drying up bodies of water or stretches of water that are regularly water-bearing for less than six months of the year. Once the notification has been received and the plausibility of the notification has been checked, the waters or sections of water bodies are included in the list of dry waters.

Bodies of water that have been included in the list of dried-up waters are excluded from the regulations on the establishment of waterside strips according to the NWG and WHG (please note the Fertiliser Ordinance or similar).

It is possible that the body of water or the section of water that you want to report has already been included in the list of dry waters. These bodies of water or sections of water can be found on the corresponding interactive environmental map of the Lower Saxony Ministry for the Environment, Energy and Climate Protection. The interactive environmental map is updated monthly.

Process flow

  • You submit your complaint to the Lower Saxony State Agency for Water Management, Coastal Protection and Nature Conservation (NLWKN).
  • On the basis of the notification received and on the basis of individual criteria, the NLWKN checks for plausibility whether the body of water or section of water could be drying up.
  • After an appropriate check for plausibility, the NLWKN includes the water body or the section of water in the list of regularly drying up waters or rejects the notification.

Requirements

  • The body of water or section of water is regularly water-bearing for less than six months of the year.
  • The body of water or the section of water is not a watercourse according to Annex 1 No. 2.1 of the Ordinance on the Protection of Surface Waters (OGewV) (WFD-Relevant)
