Intervention value for emergency (drinking) water

In the case of defense, if the regular drinking water supply fails, a temporary emergency supply with hygienic non-hazardous emergency (drinking) water needs to be ensured. However, the requirements for the quality of this water do not comply with the regulation of the Drinking Water Ordinance due to the limited duration of this emergency supply. On behalf of the BBK (Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance), FoBiG has revised the intervention values for emergency water. The results have now been published in the database “Trinkwasser aktuell”.
