Display the use of a body of water for exercises, tests and hazard prevention

Service Description

Normally, you need an official permit or authorization if you want to use water from bodies of water for your purposes.

This is not necessary if a current danger to public safety must be averted and the impending damage is more serious than the impairment of the water.

You must then inform the authorities.

Another exception concerns exercises and trials for the purposes of defense or the prevention of threats to public safety. Example: The German Armed Forces or the fire department would like to use water from lakes, rivers and other bodies of water for exercises.

You do not need a permit or authorization for these and similar purposes. However, you must report the use to the competent authority.

This use of bodies of water for training purposes may include

  • Withdrawing water from a body of water,
  • reintroducing water into a body of water by means of movable installations and
  • introducing substances into a body of water.
