Service Description

As the operator of a water supply system, you are obliged to register it. Furthermore, as the operator of a building water supply system, you are obliged to register a non-drinking water system operated in the same building.

In order to ensure the quality of drinking water, the water for drinking water supply must be tested for impurities at regular intervals.

The public health department will then contact you regarding an on-site inspection.
