De Watergroep / What do we do?
De Watergroep is the largest drinking water company in Flanders. More than 1,500 employees work hard every day to supply water through a network of over 32,000 km to 177 municipalities spread throughout West and East Flanders, Flemish Brabant and Limburg. We serve around 3 million customers and hundreds of companies.
As an autonomous water company in Flanders, De Watergroep offers products and services across the entire water chain. Our historical mission – to supply high-quality drinking water at an affordable price – remains as valid as ever. Furthermore, we adopt a sustainable closed-loop system to ensure the economically and ecologically responsible management of every link in this water chain: rainwater, groundwater and surface water, drinking water, process water and wastewater. De Watergroep is adopting a circular approach to system innovation and sustainability.
De Watergroep has over 100 years’ experience and technological know-how in the water sector. We deploy these assets in the development of a broad array of services for public authorities and businesses.
The reasons for our participation in the EJWP:
– knowledge sharing in a European context and networking development
– opportunity for young professionals to learn how to work in project mode
– share thoughts on global water issues as input for the organisation’s objectives
– contribute through the EJWP to European decision-making on the water landscape
