Who do we work for?
We perform our various tasks on behalf of two parties: the municipality of Amsterdam and the Regional Public Water Authority Amstel, Gooi en Vecht.
For the municipality, we keep the canals and other waterways in Amsterdam clean. We regularly dredge the waterways so the water can flow without obstruction. We also maintain many bridges and sluices in Amsterdam and work to automate their operation.
We also work for the Regional Public Water Authority Amstel, Gooi en Vecht. The Regional Public Water Authority makes plans for maintenance and improvements of dykes. They also make plans for maintaining the right water levels for the polders. After the plans are completed, Waternet takes over and executes the plans.
