Service Description

Do you extract water from surface waters or groundwater or pump or discharge groundwater? Then a fee must be paid to the respective federal state.

In Germany, a water abstraction charge can be levied for the abstraction and discharge of water from surface waters, as well as the abstraction, extraction, underground conduction and discharge of groundwater. The individual federal states decide whether and to what extent a water abstraction charge is levied.


Competent authority

In Schleswig-Holstein, the lower water authorities in the districts and independent cities are responsible.

Requirements

Water abstraction charges are payable by anyone who withdraws or discharges water from a surface water body or withdraws, extracts, discharges or discharges groundwater.

Which documents are required?

There is no uniform regulation in the federal states in which the water abstraction charge is levied.

What are the fees?

The amount of the charge is generally based on the medium from which the water was taken (groundwater or surface water), the amount of water and the rate of charge to be applied in each case.

Processing duration

The processing time depends on the quality and scope of the forms and documents submitted.
