KomNet and IKT invited interested sewer network operators to a web meeting. More to follow.

Corona crisis planning – this is the task currently facing all sewer network owners! In view of the current situation, the Kommunales Netzwerk Abwasser (KomNetABWASSER – Municipal Network Wastewater) and IKT have jointly decided to support all sewer network owners to the best of their ability.

A hotline has been set up and the first of a series of web conferences was held where more than 60 network operators were able to exchange information and network.

Upcoming International Webinar

We will be holding an international webinar in English for sewer network owners on ‘Corona virus and sewer operation’,

This will summarise the current guidance and approach to sewer operation in Germany and consider advice provided in other countries. This meeting can be joined from computer, tablet or smartphone.

Organising exchanges

We invited all interested wastewater network operators to a first web telephone conference on last Wednesday to announce the start of the initiative. “We want to exchange views on which organisational measures need to be taken and which tips and ideas are available in the network” says Marco Schlüter, director of the KomNet.

New hotline for network operators

This is KomNetABWASSER

logo of KomNetABWASSER, the municipal network of wastewaterThe Kommunales Netzwerk Abwasser (KomNetABWASSER), or Community Network for Wastewater, is an initiative of about 60 German and Dutch wastewater companies. The aim is to jointly implement the obligation for municipal wastewater disposal in a better and more citizen-friendly manner – as cost-effectively as possible and in accordance with the generally recognised rules for the application of technologies. To this end, the Network makes use of IKT’s services. This means that not everyone has to reinvent the wheel again and again.

Engine, idea provider, sparring partner
KomNetABWASSER sees itself as an initiator and supporter for the participating municipalities. Current topics, which the municipalities want to address, are scientifically examined and practically inplemented.
