Reusing water

Treated wastewater is reused for irrigation. Before being supplied as irrigation water, the water is treated with UV-light. UV-radiation makes bacteria harmless, thus optimizing the quality of the water.

Since January 2015 WEB is delivering irrigation water by truck to farmers and gardeners. Who is eligible is assessed by public service LVV (Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries department). There the request for supply of irrigation water must be submitted.

Irrigation generates a conversion process in the soil and in the roots of plants, as with the use of fertilizer. The remaining nutrients in treated wastewater are beneficial to the plants. The same goes for the so-called ‘sewage sludge’ that is left from the treatment of wastewater. This sludge is dried and then used as a fertilizer.
