Glasses were raised in Schwerin just recently: the water association, Zweckverband Schweriner Umland, and Wasserversorgungs- und Abwasserentsorgungsgesellschaft Schwerin mbH & Co. KG (WAG) extended their drinking water supply contract until 2035. The contract extension came into force at the beginning of the year.
Local residents living in the 12 districts belonging to the Schweriner Umland region have been supplied with fresh, high quality drinking water from the supply networks and processing plants run by EURAWASSER’s subsidiary WAG for almost thirty years now. This successful long-standing partnership between the state capital’s drinking water supplier and the Zweckverband Schweriner Umland will, therefore, continue as before.

WAG managing director, Hanno Nispel, was delighted to see the contract extended: “A contract should be based on trust and achieve a top performance. This is exactly what the collaboration with the Zweckverband Schweriner Umland delivers.” The successful cooperation work has developed and grown over time and has also been intensified over the last few years. The result of this effective work is a new 15-year contract covering annual drinking water supplies amounting to approx. 600,000m³.

The first agreement to supply drinking water to the districts around the state capital Schwerin was signed in 1993. This has been renewed several times and the latest extension, which officially began on 01 January 2020, guarantees stability and security for a further 15 years. “It is extremely important for us to secure high quality services over a long period of time. WAG is a high-performing, reliable and very good partner both when it comes to supplying drinking water and treating wastewater,” commented Georg Ihde, chair of the water association.
