Stronger together – "EG/LV", a model for success
From a legal perspective, EMSCHERGENOSSENSCHAFT (EG) and LIPPEVERBAND (LV) are two public sector entities with comparable statutory tasks. However, we have been bundling our competence for more than 85 years already, and thus represent the largest wastewater management company and operator of wastewater treatment plants in Germany. The advantages of this partnership are readily apparent: significant synergy effects thanks to more knowledge, more experience, and more economic efficiency. This enables us to perform our tasks in a particularly cost-effective manner. Above all, we share the same common objective: to create convincing ecological, technical and design solutions on the Emscher and Lippe rivers – in this region and for this region.
For more than 100 years, we have been active in our region. Our statutory task is to work in the public Service of all residents and the benefit of our members, without economic self-interest. In the largest metropolitan area in Europe, we are ensuring the revival of living, species-rich river landscapes, and providing inspiration for urban development and structural change.
