Of course, clean and delicious

The drinking water from Stadtwerke Landshut is an ideal thirst quencher. It comes fresh and natural from the tap. Several times a year we leave the Fountain take samples in the Siebensee and Schlossberg water protection areas and at various points in the pipeline network and examine them through a laboratory.

water quality

Drinking water is one of the most strictly monitored foods ever. Basically, the quality of the water depends on the nature of the substrate, but also on the man-made influences. Artificial fertilizer and liquid manure, which farmers bring to the fields, are included, for example. Stadtwerke Landshut, in cooperation with the farmers, has targeted these influenceable factors at an early stage.

Since 1994, we have been committed to sustainable management of the water protection area in Siebensee in the Landshut West, where most of our drinking water is extracted. The Stadtwerke bought or leased a total of 80 hectares of land and leased them to organic farmers. The trusting and partnership-based cooperation with the organic farmers as well as with the conventionally operating enterprises in the vicinity of the water protection area have contributed to the fact that the Landshut drinking water has a sustainable and consistently high quality. The measured values are regularly far below the statutory limits.

The current analysis results for the entire supply area can be found in the drinking water test report.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ) & information about water quality

Can you drink Landshut drinking water from the tap?

Yes, the Landshut drinking water is of the highest quality. It is constantly being examined by an independent laboratory. The measured values are regularly far below the statutory limits. Equally important for the water quality, however, are the condition and suitability of the water pipes in the house. If there are pipes in a building that contaminate the water, the best water quality is of no use.

What is the water hardness of the water in Landshut?

The Landshut drinking water is classified in the hardness range "hard". The hardness of the water plays a significant role in washing the laundry. Please adhere to the dosage of the detergent manufacturers. The effect of water hardness is alleviated by most detergents by the addition of phosphates. However, phosphates have the disadvantage that they overfertilize the rivers and lakes with nutrients. Proper detergent dosage, which depends on the water hardness, can make an important contribution to water protection.

Is the tap water also suitable for baby food?

According to the recommendation of the Federal Environmental Agency it can be used to prepare baby food. The Federal Environment Agency recommends preparing baby food only with bottled water if the nitrate limit value of the TrinkwV (50 mg / l) is exceeded. In Landshut, the limit has fallen almost fourfold. The current measured value you can the Drinking Water Test Report Landshut remove.

Why is the nitrate level in Landshut so low?

Basically, the quality of the water depends on the nature of the substrate, but also on the man-made influences. Artificial fertilizer and liquid manure, which farmers bring to the fields, are included, for example. Stadtwerke Landshut, in cooperation with the farmers, has targeted these influenceable factors at an early stage. Since 1994, public utilities have been committed to the sustainable management of the water protection area in Siebensee so that less fertilizer and manure are introduced. The Stadtwerke bought or leased a total of 80 hectares of land and leased them to organic farmers.

The trusting and partnership-based cooperation with the organic farmers as well as with the conventionally operating enterprises in the vicinity of the water protection area have contributed to the fact that the Landshut drinking water has a sustainable and consistently high quality.

Is PFOA detectable in drinking water?

In the catchment area of the wells of Stadtwerke Landshut there are no corresponding facilities, such as chemical parks or company fire brigades, which would pose a risk for an input of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). The PFOA exam is not part of the standard exam program. However, in July 2018, Stadtwerke had a water sample tested for PFOA due to discussions in the district of Altötting. No PFOA was detectable.

Are there pharmaceutical residues or microplastics in drinking water?

Stadtwerke Landshut exclusively uses groundwater. This feeds mainly from rainwater, which seeps through several layers of soil and is thereby filtered. It is only influenced to a small extent by bank filtrates. Bank filtrate refers to drinking water that comes from wells that are located near rivers or lakes. There is a greater risk of contamination in surface waters, such as B. in drinking water dams. Therefore, if at all, only a slight influence on the Landshut drinking water is to be expected.

How can I prevent unwanted overconsumption?

Steady dripping is known to cave in the stone. However, if the tap drips, licking a pipe or a valve, this is reflected in the consumption statement. Here are a few simple tips for tenants, owners and caretakers of residential complexes to get rid of unwanted extra consumption and eliminate:

  • In principle, Stadtwerke Landshut recommends the regular maintenance of the drinking water installation by a correspondingly qualified installer.
  • Check safety valves of hot water systems or central heating systems regularly or have them checked by a specialist.
  • Check piping systems for leaks: Close all water consumption points. If the water meter comes to a standstill everything is fine. If he keeps turning, there is a leak somewhere. That is what to look for.
  • Regularly, for example monthly, write down the consumption values. Especially if it is a water meter shaft outside the house or the property is uninhabited.
  • Pay attention to running toilet flushing systems: After flushing, no more water may escape.
  • Replace dripping taps and shower heads.
  • Leaky hose systems: The garden water hose should never be left under operating pressure.
