Increasing world population, urbanisation, and new modes of production and consumption create a dual challenge, combining public health and environmental protection. On a global scale, sewerage and stormwater network management is a crucial issue for the preservation of the natural environment and the long-term future of urban lifestyles. SUEZ develops solutions to challenge conventional approaches, replacing them with innovative, dynamic sewerage and stormwater management systems.
Ensuring sewerage network performance to enhance living conditions and the natural environment
There are two types of sewerage system. Combined systems discharge some or all of the surface water into the foul water drainange system, while separate systems always keep them apart. Even if the collection principles are different, the operational standards remain the same.
Performance is a crucial factor in choosing the right sewerage system. Meeting the wastewater and stormwater challenge is a transformative act, designed to improve people’s living conditions and foster cities’ resilience. In a context of accrued sustainability, transparency, environmental protection and related regulations, sewer and drainage networks must be considered an integral part of the full water cycle.
Today, operators are seeking to manage wastewater in a responsible, more sustainable and efficient way.
of sewerage is discharged untreated and directly into natural water bodies in developing countries
of polluted stormwater is discharged into rivers and onto beaches
of industrial effluent is dumped untreated into natural water bodies in developing countries
