A changing industry
The 6th global goal is about ensuring availability and sustainable management of clean water and sanitation for everyone around the world. This is viewed as a hygiene matter in Sweden. What we take for granted today, however, does not come about by itself. Sweden consists of hundreds of miles of municipal water mains buried into the ground. The municipal water system needs to handle stormwater, wastewater, and drinking water. Stormwater includes rain, snow melt, and drainage. Wastewater is used water left after showering, doing the dishes, doing laundry, or using the toilet. Drinking water is the tap water you drink, shower in, and wash in. In order for this to work in the way we are used to, we need pumping stations and sewage treatment plants. That’s where Uniwater comes in.
Together, we provide society with clean water.
