    Brussels-based water company Vivaqua will invest more than 300 million euros in renovating Brussels’ sewer system over the next five years. 

    The intercommunal water body wants to draw up a global map of the 1,900 km-long sewer system by 2024. Currently, there are only records regarding about 55% of it.

    The company has set a budget of 60 million euros for 2019, which will go on repairs, planned projects, and emergency interventions.

    The amount of work done will increase every year: the budget for 2024 will be 70 million euros, meaning a total spend of 300 million euros over five years.
