Water specialists and sewerage treatment operators

The sewerage and water specialists of a municipality are responsible for the municipal sewerage system and for a large part of the watercourses. Larger watercourses are sometimes the responsibility of regional or national organisations. This varies from country to country.
They hold a joint responsibility with water boars to prevent flooding. Nowadays, part of the task of water storage is entrusted to house owners and companies. Water managers are also responsible for the vision of the water infrastructure. This is how they contribute to a liveable, attractive and resilient living environment.
