The HYDREOS Route de l’eau in Alsace and Lorraine

The Route de l’eau is a unique scheme created by HYDREOS. It brings together a number of outstanding sites, which demonstrate the skills and technical excellence of Eastern France’s water industry in Alsace and Lorraine.

Our aim

The Route de l’eau is designed for French and overseas water industry professionals who want to learn from the skills and experience of others, to help carry out their own projects. It acts as a showcase for the professional competence, inventiveness and dynamism of water specialists working in Alsace and Lorraine.
Through a series of themed routes, the scheme allows professionals in the field to present and promote outstanding sites and their achievements.
