Groundwater abstraction approval

In order to secure and manage the amount of groundwater available, groundwater abstractions require authorisation by the competent body.

A permit or authorisation for the removal, removal or transfer of groundwater is not necessary, inter alia, for the supply of water to the private household and, in other cases, for the abstraction of small quantities for a temporary purpose.

The quantitative management of groundwater has been regulated by decree by the Lower Saxony Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Climate Protection, which also describes the requirements for authorisation.
