Dr Emanuel Grün

Executive Board Member for Water Management and Technical Services

We reliably perform the complex water management tasks for the people in our region, 365 days per year. This includes the safe and environmentally friendly operation of our wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and special structures, as well as waterbody management and the associated flood protection. We plan our plants on our own authority – and supervise every project, from the initial concept to the start of operation, with our own technical competence.

We support new water management topics with our expert knowledge - whether in relation to climate change and its anticipated consequences for urban development, an ageing population and the immediate influence of increasing pharmaceutical use on the water cycle, or the subject of water and energy, which highlights the conflicting interests of needs and benefits. In doing so. we rely on the practical application of state-of-the-art technology in the digital age.

Technical sophistication and ecological sustainability, but in particular also economic optimisation, are the standards to which we work. This is what our customers expect, and this is also how we understand our mission. We master these challenging objectives with competence, commitment, creativity, and innovation. We are in continuous contact with one another, openly communicating new ideas, forthcoming problems, opportunities and risks.
