Wastewater

Back

We treat the wastewater of 1.2 million people living in the Greater Copenhagen Area at our three treatment plants Lynetten, Avedøre and Damhusåen.

The wastewater is treated for organic and in-organic solids together with nitrogen and phosporous.

The treated wastewater from Lynetten and Damhusåen is discharged into The Sound via two 1.5 km-long pipes leading into the sea. The treated wastewater from Avedøre is discharged into Køge Bay via two 1.1 km-long pipes leading into the sea.
