Your New Drinking Water Connection
Someone who is in the process of building has a lot on his plate. We would like to support you in this exciting phase. Our check list shows you how you can apply for your drinking water connection, which documents you require for this purpose and where you can find competent points of contact.
Our tip: Apply for your building connection in due time before construction begins and plan in a processing time of up to six weeks.
If you require supply line information before making an application, you can request it from us or via the online supply line portal infrest.de. The supply line information offers customers who are planning a construction project important information about where the supply pipelines are located.
