A water extraction area is an area where water extraction takes place for drinking water by abstraction of groundwater. In a water extraction area, rules are often applied to protect the quality of groundwater. For example, the discharge of wastewater is prohibited or subject to heavy requirements.
This water extraction area is known for its good quality water (soft water) and supplies water to Meppel, Steenwijk, Staphorst and Westerveld.
