Heat pumps and geothermal probes; notification of boreholes for construction

Boreholes for the installation of geothermal probe systems and groundwater heat pumps must be notified to the responsible district administrative authority in order to protect the soil and groundwater against contamination.



Work which penetrates so deeply into the ground that it may have a direct or indirect effect on the movement, level or quality of the groundwater shall be notified to the competent authority one month before commencement of the work.

If one month has elapsed since the notification and no cessation or removal order has been issued in accordance with Section 49 (3) WHG, the work may be commenced and carried out until the groundwater is affected.
