Water supply; securing

The public supply of drinking water to households as a service of general interest is provided by the municipalities, municipal utilities (water supply companies) or municipal special-purpose associations.


Public water supply is a task of general interest (Section 50 (1) of the Water Resources Act) and in Bavaria is a mandatory task of the municipalities in their own sphere of action (Article 57 (2) of the Municipal Code).

The municipalities and special-purpose associations regulate the scope of their supply area and the amount of water supply contributions and charges by means of statutes. In the supply areas, there is usually a connection and use obligation.

If you have any questions about water connections (e.g., property connections, garden connections), contributions and fees, or the quality of your drinking water, please contact your municipality or city first.

For technical questions regarding drinking water hygiene, please contact the health department of your district office.
