Description of the Company
 

As the Inter-Authority Agency for drinking water production in the sub-basin of the River Sambre, AQUASAMBRE, operates the public water supply in the six towns and local authority areas of Charleroi and its immediate neighbourhood (the Province of Hainaut).

AQUASAMBRE supplies approximately 257,000 people through the 100,000 subscribers connected to its network.

The water supplied by AQUASAMBRE comes exclusively from wells drilled into the underground carboniferous limestone aquifer. AQUASAMBRE produced 12,250,000 cubic metres of water in 2002.

With a probable restructuring of the water production and distribution sector in the Walloon Region ahead and a regrouping of agencies by sub-basin, AQUASAMBRE should play a key driving role in the sub-basin of the Sambre.
