Exemption from joining the water utility's water supply or sewerage network

According to the Water Services Act, a property located in the area covered by the water utility's water supply and sewerage network must join the network. The aim is to protect the environment and human health. It is possible to apply for exemption from the obligation. Its granting is conditional on, among other things, circumstances that make joining the network unreasonable, the sufficient availability of high-quality domestic water and the proper treatment of wastewater. The exemption is granted on a temporary basis. Exemption from the obligation can be applied for from the Environment and Building Control Department. The exemption can be granted if all exemption criteria listed in the Act on Water Services are met.
