Following an EU-wide tender process, REMONDIS EURAWASSER has once again been awarded a contract to run the owner-operated municipal waterworks by Bad Breisig, an association of local authorities located in the Rhineland- Palatinate region. As a result, the approx. 4,000 households belonging to the association’s area will continue to be supplied with drinking water as in the past by the successful public private partnership until 2023. The branch in Grafschaft has been responsible for both the commercial and technological management of the waterworks since 2010. The association of local authorities includes the City of Bad Breisig as well as Brohl-Lützingen Gönnersdorf, Rheineck and Waldorf, all of which are supplied with drinking water by this plant.
Customers are supplied with water thanks to the seven reservoirs, nine pumping stations and a network of pipes around 131km in length.
The infrastructure of this owner-operated municipal waterworks comprises seven drinking water reservoirs and nine pumping stations as well as a drinking pipe network of around 131km in length. Each year, the association sources its approx. 680,000 cubic metres of drinking water from the neighbouring district of Sinzig. The new contract awarded to REMONDIS EURAWASSER covers a wide range of tasks including managing the plant’s technical operations, delivering the engineering and specialist expertise needed to monitor and maintain the water supply network, providing on-call services, organising quality control and quality management, compiling profitability calculations, supporting any necessary renovation and investment measures as well as replacing water meters as and when required.
The commercial side of the business includes the company delivering customer services, calculating fees and charges, doing all necessary bookkeeping and accounting tasks, compiling business plans, providing support for tender and approval procedures, drawing up annual statements and appointing a plant manager to run the waterworks.
Bad Breisig shows how public private partnerships can become a long-standing municipal success in the water management sector as well.
REMONDIS EURAWASSER GmbH was founded in 2008. Today, it supports its customers based in the north of the Rhineland-Palatinate region from its head office in Grafschaft. Besides running the waterworks owned by the Bad Breisig association, the company, being a shareholder in Regionalwerken Grafschaft GmbH, is also responsible for the commercial and technological management of the owner-operated municipal waterworks and sewage treatment plant in Grafschaft. Thanks to the company’s effective management system and the many synergies within the EURAWASSER Group both in and beyond the Rhineland-Palatinate region, it is able to make considerable savings – to the benefit of both the region and the customers.
