The activities of Aarhus Vand comprise rainwater disposal (including climate adaptation projects), the production and distribution of drinking water, transport and purification of wastewater, emptying of private holding tanks as well as safeguarding a balanced and healthy water cycle.
Our mission is to offer and develop resource-efficient services throughout the entire water cycle, creating a climate-adapted, sound environment, growth and export, all of which will be of benefit to customers and stakeholders.
Aarhus Vand supplies 275,000 customers with more than 15 million cubic metres per year of great tasting water that is safe to drink directly from the tap. About 85 percent of the inhabitants of Aarhus Municipality receive their drinking water from us.
We purify more than 30 million cubic metres wastewater per year from 300,000 customers, and thereby we contribute to public health and a steadily improving aquatic environment.
We constantly focus on making a good workplace even better, and our vision is to be Denmark’s leading water company.

Watch the launch of Aarhus Vand’s innovation strategy for Marselisborg ReWater. The kick-off event was attended by the Mayor of Aarhus, Jacob Bundsgaard and representatives from companies, research institutions and organisations who were all invited to help Aarhus Vand develop the world’s most resource-efficient wastewater treatment plant.
This project is about flood prevention and preventing wastewater from overflowing into lakes, streams and bay by creating large basins and optimal control of the basins, sewerage plants and water treatment plants. In 2005, the Municipality of Aarhus decided to improve the quality of the water hygiene in the receiving waters through the Aarhus River […]
The water supply company ‘Aarhus Vand’ is currently conducting an extensive wastewater project, which will improve the water environment in Aarhus significantly. The water is to have a high hygienic quality – preferably bathing water quality – and it must be suitable for recreational activities. The project is also aimed at preventing flooding and overspill […]
In 2014, Leif Koch, DHI, and Ramböll partnered with the Taipei Office of the Trade Council of Denmark and the Taiwan Water Corporation for a pilot project to reduce water loss in Taiwan. These organizations sent a team of leakage engineers and operators to work at a test site on Chijin Island. With the rising […]
With the help of Danfoss drives, the Aarhus wastewater treatment plant in Denmark not only ensures clean water – it also produces more electricity and heating than it consumes. Water and wastewater facilities account for the largest consumption of electricity in most municipalities, typically 25-40% of the total energy use. In the Danish city of […]
As the climate changes and the number and frequency of rainfall events increases, so does the need for intelligent rainwater management solutions. This White Paper presents insight into lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within rainwater management and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS).
25-50% of all distributed water globally is lost or never invoiced due to illegal connections, inaccurate billing systems, inaccurate metering, leakages, deteriorating infrastructure and wrong water pressure management etc. – or in short Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This white paper examines how water utilities can improve efficiency and meet future demand for water by reducing Non-Revenue Water.
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This and the threat of water scarcity underline the need for more efficient and smarter wastewater treatment across the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
