Water quality

Towards better water quality

The quality of ground and surface water is under pressure in many locations around the world. Not only due to high concentrations of nutrients and soil contaminants or industrial discharges, but also to new substances such as pharmaceutical residues. This is a threat to our drinking water and to nature. Climate change will only increase the quality issues.

Witteveen+Bos contributes to the improvement of (ground)water and the (ecological) quality of water systems. We do this in projects ranging from research and planning to works supervision.

On the one hand, this includes (national) analyses to identify problems and translate them into policy and planning. On the other hand, we design measures to treat wastewater in such a way as to reduce the impact on water systems. We also design measures and programmes to address diffuse sources, including adapted processing and techniques in agriculture.
