The recognition of natural mineral springs requires an approval of the Lower Austrian Regional Government. The approval procedure must be initiated at the request of the owner of the natural mineral springs.
A natural occurrence is going to be recognized as natural mineral springs, if it is proven that:
- the natural mineral springs have sufficient fertility for the intended therapeutic application
- the natural mineral springs possess certain physical, physical-chemical or chemical characteristics, which are required for the intended use
- people can expect a scientifically recognized healing effect without changing the natural composition of the natural mineral springs
There is no time limit existing for this request.
There are no costs and fees.
§ 6 NÖ Heilvorkommen- und Kurortegesetz 1978
