Water supply; safeguarding

The public supply of households with drinking water is carried out by the municipalities or special-purpose associations (water supply companies).


Public water supply is a task of general interest (Section 50(1) of the Water Resources Act) and in Bavaria is a compulsory task of the municipalities in their own sphere of action.

The municipalities and special-purpose associations regulate the scope of their supply area and the amount of the 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 the water connection (e.g. property connection, garden connection), contributions and fees or the quality of your drinking water, please contact your municipality or your city first.

For specialist questions on drinking water hygiene, please contact the health department of your district authority.
