Water and Wastewater Services

Veolia generally groups water and wastewater services into three different groupings: Water treatment, Wastewater treatment and Oily water treatment.

All treatment options require a thorough analysis of the content and existing conditions prior to solution design, but common treatment options include microfiltration, reverse osmosis, advanced oxidation, stabilisation and disinfection. Oily water treatment falls under our hazardous waste services, so please visit our dedicated page for more information.

Where does Veolia treat water?

In this specific context, ‘water’ refers to what is produced from the tap e.g. drinking water.
