Abstract

Although the Ruhr is a relatively small river, it is the major supplier of drinking and industrial water in the heavily populated and industrialised 'Ruhr District'. The background, both juridical, financial and technical and the conditions for foundation of Ruhrverband at the beginning of this century are described, in order to show how present solutions were arrived at. The Ruhrverband is a public body, formed from an association of communities, industries and waterworks. It takes responsibility for the comprehensive management of water in the entire river basin of the Ruhr. The work of Ruhrverband is today focused on sophisticated water quantity and quality management for more than 5 million people, using raw water taken from the Ruhr. Since its foundation, conditions have changed in regard to financial and political demands, as well as the requirements for water management, particularly in water quality. At the present time the Ruhrverband is operating eight reservoirs, 96 sewage treatment plants and more than 430 storm water treatment plants. Overall investments since World War II have totalled DM7.65 bn. Despite the progress in water quality, which has been documented by decreases in various pollution parameters, there is still a requirement for capital expenditure for future measures which is estimated to be approximately DM3 billion, and which will be essential for further advances in wastewater treatment.
