The present Provincial Act lays down provisions intended to protect the internal waters of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano. For the purpose of this Act, natural and artificial lakes comprised within the provincial territory are considered as protected basins. Such protection determines some use restrictions for the owners or holders of the territories concerned. Particular prohibitions are set forth in article 3 (2). For instance, any modification of the elements which constitute a basin is forbidden, as well as the release of waste and waste water discharges. The surveillance system is awarded to the provincial Biological Laboratory and to the Communes. The former is also in charge of the assessment of the characteristics of waters. Article 9 lays down penalties.
