Since 2008 at Veolia Water Milwaukee, we work around the clock to protect Lake Michigan by providing high-quality wastewater treatment services. We are contracted by Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) to operate and maintain Jones Island and South Shore water reclamation facilities, and the District’s conveyance and deep tunnel systems. In doing so, we help provide wastewater treatment for 28 communities and over 1 million people in southeastern Wisconsin.
We are part of Veolia Water North America which serves people in approximately 550 communities around the country, and provide industrial water solutions at about 100 industrial facilities. We treat more than 2.2 billion gallons of water and wastewater daily. Veolia Water North America is part of Veolia Water, a division of Veolia Environment (NYSE: VE; Paris Bourse: VIE), the world's largest environmental company.
Veolia Water Milwaukee is committed to funding research into water issues of emerging concern, making advances whose impacts will be felt not only in the Great Lakes region – but around the world.
As new residuals, such as pharmaceuticals, are detected in the earth's waters, it is critical that we understand their presence and pursue cutting-edge processes to remove them. Research we are funding in Milwaukee aims for important improvements in alternative energy and green house gas reduction, as well as water quality improvements in watersheds that will enhance the quality of life for many people.
