Norwegian term or phrase: drikkevannsregisteret
"Data fra drikkevannsregisteret, registre over avløpsvann og vassdrag"

I appreciate that this refers to a register of drinking/potable water, but can't find any official reference. Can anyone help?
TIA

English translation:Drinking Water Register
Explanation:
Mattilsynet (the Norwegian Food Safety Authority) monitors the safety of food and drinking water in Norway and their website has several references to drinking water. You could give them a call or send a mail. Alternatively you could just use the term “Drinking Water Register” (there are a number of these worldwide, e.g. the "Drinking-Water Register of the New Zealand Ministry of Health and the United Utilities Drinking Water Register, see second reference).
