The registration of wells, boreholes and other groundwater facilities in private properties will be extended due to the pandemic. The aim is to avoid the movement and collection of people in front of the counters of the basin directorates. Initially, the deadline was November 27th 2020 but the parliament adopted the decision to extend the deadline to November 28th 2022 at a first reading today.
All property owners who have wells, boreholes, drainages and other facilities for groundwater extraction in their properties have to register them with the respective basin directorate. The registration is mandatory and the deadline is November 27, 2020.
