Ground water and drinking water supply


More than 94 per cent of the drinking water in Brandenburg is obtained from groundwater. However, groundwater is not just of great importance as the source of our drinking water. It also feeds surface water, and wetland areas thank their existence to groundwater levels which are close to the surface. Therefore protection and monitoring of groundwater resources forms an important basis for sustainable water supply, keeping rivers and lakes pure, as well as maintaining valuable biotopes.
