9. HILUCS Topic: Drinking water facility

Situation: In many nomenclatures there is a difference between “supply” and “disposal”. Drinking water facilities have a different significance in landscape than sewage facilities.

Proposal: Make a difference under 4_3_2_WaterAndSewageInfrastructure between 4_3_2_1_DrinkingWaterFacility and 4_3_2_2_SewageWaterAndTreatmentFacility.
