The journey of the water
The purification at the Van Oldenbarnveltlaan cleans sewage from all of Eindhoven and its surroundings. The sewage treatment of Veldhoven is also being cleaned. During a walk around the site, the public is seeing how about 150 million liters of sewage will be cleaned on a daily basis. Employees of Water Board The Dommel explain how the sewage treatment works. At the toilet, toilet ladies tell in a comic manner what will happen to what visitors leave behind and give tips to save home water.
