Notification of the supply or use of household water in the water distribution zone

The department of environmental services of the Lappeenranta region processes the notifications in the area of Lappeenranta, Lemi, Luumäki, Taipalsaari and Savitaipale.

An operator must notify the municipal health protection authority of the supply and use of household water in the water supply zone.

When an operator only supplies household water, it means that they do not have their own water production or treatment. A typical example is a water cooperative that buys household water from elsewhere and supplies it to its partners.

Use of household water means that an operator uses their equipment to abstract household water in order to use it as a part of their public or commercial operations.
