ENHANCING SUSTAINABILITY AND EFFICIENCY

Joseph HERMAL, Managing Director
1. – Over the past 80 years, a lasting endeavour to constantly reinvent
itself for the public good
From a municipal regional
service provider
50  737 local authorities
TERRITORIES
From fragmented governance to
a subsidiarity principle
(think global, act local)
From the operation of water supply
services to integrated and
sustainable management of water
resources
 100+ skills / inter disciplinary
From local knowledge to high-
level expertise and skills,
industrial processes, top-level
management, and digital
transformation
 SDEA = on a par with SUEZ et
VEOLIA
GOVERNANCE

ET METHODS
CORE BUSINESSES
1939-1998
From a municipal (Service des Eaux de
Strasbourg-Campagne) to a district
(département) service provider, supporting local
authorities for water supply
1998 - 2014
Transformation to an inter-municipal authority
(Syndicat des Eaux et
de l’Assainissement du Bas-Rhin - SDEA) with shared –
and then full – responsability
2014 - now
SDEA becomes a regional body (Syndicat des Eaux et
de l’Assainissement Alsace- Moselle)+ in charge of water
resources management + cross-cutting issues in the
jurisdiction of inter-municipal authorities

An agile institutional, economic, technical model, increasingly integrated, in line with dramatic change in
water-related challenges; a source of inspiration in France and in Europe
2. – From WSS to WRM, in line with the challenges faced by larger
territories (Alsace – Moselle)
SDEA, a role model for water resources management in France and in Europe

Joint workshop on Enhancing efficiency and sustainability of Water Supply and Sanitation presentation - Joseph Hermal

  • 1. ENHANCING SUSTAINABILITY AND EFFICIENCY OF WSS PROVISION Contribution of SDEA Joseph HERMAL, Managing Director
  • 2. 1. – Over the past 80 years, a lasting endeavour to constantly reinvent itself for the public good From a municipal regional service provider 50  737 local authorities TERRITORIES From fragmented governance to a subsidiarity principle (think global, act local) From the operation of water supply services to integrated and sustainable management of water resources  100+ skills / inter disciplinary From local knowledge to high- level expertise and skills, industrial processes, top-level management, and digital transformation  SDEA = on a par with SUEZ et VEOLIA GOVERNANCE MANAGEMENT ET METHODS CORE BUSINESSES 1939-1998 From a municipal (Service des Eaux de Strasbourg-Campagne) to a district (département) service provider, supporting local authorities for water supply 1998 - 2014 Transformation to an inter-municipal authority (Syndicat des Eaux et de l’Assainissement du Bas-Rhin - SDEA) with shared – and then full – responsability 2014 - now SDEA becomes a regional body (Syndicat des Eaux et de l’Assainissement Alsace- Moselle)+ in charge of water resources management + cross-cutting issues in the jurisdiction of inter-municipal authorities 2 An agile institutional, economic, technical model, increasingly integrated, in line with dramatic change in water-related challenges; a source of inspiration in France and in Europe
