About MPWiK S.A. in Wrocław
Everything starts with water…
MPWiK S.A. (Municipal Water and Sewerage Company) in Wrocław is almost 150 years old. Currently, it supplies high quality water from Oława and Nysa Kłodzka to 700 thousand recipients from Wrocław and 7 neighbouring communes.
What distinguishes MPWiK, is that for years it has been taking care of the natural environment and is socially involved. It also undertakes activities aimed at improving environmental awareness, e.g. through a social campaign #PijKranówkę (#DrinkTapWater). A specific example of implementing the CSR policy is shaping good attitudes among the youngest by establishing the preschool Academy of Friends of Water and launching the website www.mpwikdzieciom.pl.
Most spectacular embodiment of the educational mission is Hydropolis.
This unique knowledge water centre combines educational values with modern forms of exhibition. Hydropolis is also an exceptional example of revitalization of a post-industrial facility. The exhibition devoted to water is located in a 19th century underground clean water reservoir.
MPWiK, as a Company of strategic importance from the point of view of Wrocław’s development, strives for perfection in every activity. It has a New Technologies Centre, responsible for cooperation with the scientific community and seeking innovative solutions.
The Company employs nearly 800 persons who on a daily basis take care of the quality of water, supplying it to the households of citizens and collecting the wastewater.
