Promotion of Municipal Water Management in Residential Areas

For the establishment and maintenance of water supply and sewage disposal in Austria the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management makes available subsidies.

Funding provided by the Federal Government for residential-area water management considerably facilitates and supports the implementation of measures aiming at systematic wastewater disposal, including wastewater discharged by companies, and also guarantees sufficient water supply at municipal level.

The subsidisation constitutes an important financial support for municipalities and associations and enables a socially-compatible pricing policy for the people. 

Efforts made in the past have already resulted in a marked improvement of the water quality of our lakes and rivers. Still, we absolutely need, also in the future, to realize adequate measures aiming at a systematic disposal of municipal and industrial wastewater and at providing the population with sufficient quantities of hygienically perfect drinking water.
