Historically Degrémont’s first reference site in Belgium, the station treats water from a lake, which is naturally very soft and very acid.
In 2006, in order to anticipate European standards on the quality of water taken from surface water (more sensitive to polluting elements), the SWDE has undertaken major works to modernise the station.
The current water treatment has been complemented by a filtration stage over nanofiltration membranes. This new station was commissioned in March 2009.
