Waste water is collected and treated according to the highest standards. This is the result of many years of dedicated efforts in establishing integrated water management systems and improving water governance at all levels of public administration. At the same time, we are fortunate to be able to rely on the innovative expertise of the Austrian water industry to provide us with state-of the-art solutions to achieve our goals.”
