The inspection team consists of Aqualectra, the Police department and the Public Prosecution Service. If in case they detect irregularities at a residency, a business or any other location, the home owner or business owner can count on severe fines that can run up to 20.000 guilders, in addition to costs related to corrective work that will need to be done on the installation, possible reporting to the authorities and publication in the media about the results of the actions taken.
