Water sources

Help is at hand for those living in the Portimão area, including foreign residents, regarding the registration of wells and boreholes.

People now have until May 2010 to register waste outlets and water sources.

The help service at the Portimão Junta de Freguesia, parish council, is free of charge, despite the usual stamp duty to be paid on registration.

Individuals face a fine of up to 25,000 euros if they do not meet the registration deadline.
