Abstract

The present Law applies to surface waters, groundwater and parts thereof. Waters are to be secured as part of the natural environment and living space for human beings, animals and plants. They have to be managed in such a way that they meet the need and well being of the community; once such a principle is complied with, their use may also suit individual interests. Adverse influence on eco-systems has to be avoided and in general a sustainable development has to be guaranteed. The text consists of 126 articles divided into 8 Parts as follows: General provisions (1); Management of waters (2); Special provisions on protection of waters (3); Provision on water charges for water abstraction (4); Prevention of hazards, toleration and concession obligations, expropriation (5); Surveillance of waters (6); Competences and proceedings (7); Penalties and transitional provisions (8). Five Annexes are enclosed.
