Solutions to major challenges

Water is crucial to our lives. We use large quantities of drinking water, groundwater or surface water for all kinds of applications. However, our water system is under pressure. Periods of increasing drought and heavy rainfall have a huge impact on the water system. The water quality of many surface waters is poor. At the same time, the demand for fresh water is on the rise and it takes more and more effort and energy to produce drinking water and treat wastewater.

We will therefore need to design water systems to be robust and sustainable in the coming years. This could include water retention during wet periods, improving the water quality or the extensive treatment of wastewater streams.

Reducing water consumption, innovative ways of managing water and drawing up appropriate water policies are also examples. We take a solution-oriented look at these challenges and thereby contribute to the water systems of the future.
