DRAWING WATER FROM THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT draws water from the natural environment and treats it so that it is safe for consumption. It can be drawn from the sea and desalinated before being transformed into drinking water.
STORAGE AND DISTRIBUTION
The drinking water is stored and then distributed through a network of pipes, which requires continual monitoring and maintenance.
INDUSTRIAL USES OF WATER
A great deal of water is used for industrial processes. The water is recovered and any pollutants are removed before it is released back into the collection drains for municipal wastewater.
WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND REUSE
Wastewater is routed to a wastewater treatment plant. The water can then be released back into the natural environment or re-used for watering, irrigation, or industrial processes.
RECOVERY OF SEWAGE SLUDGE
The sludge produced by wastewater treatment can be recovered and treated for use as compost in agriculture and gardening.
