Evides Watercompany is the supplier of drinking water in the south western part of the Netherlands. Some 2.5 million consumers and companies rely on high quality drinking water -- 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The company's activities further include water treatment and the supply of various types of water to industrial clients in the Netherlands and abroad.
Our main source of water is the river Maas. As the Maas is fed mainly by rain, its flow rate is irregular. To safeguard a steady supply, we have built three reservoirs in the Dutch Biesbosch area. The reservoirs have a total capacity of 80 million cubic metres. On average, the water remains in the reservoirs for a period of five months. Having these reservoirs allows Evides to take water from the river Maas only when it's at its best.
