EWE WASSER GmbH is one of northwest Germany's largest wastewater disposal companies. The company is responsible for the environmentally friendly transportation and purification of wastewater arising from a population equivalent of around 1 million in the Ems/Weser/Elbe region. In order to do this, EWE WASSER operates wastewater networks and 23 modern wastewater purification plants, all with stringent quality requirements. Because of this, the level of harmful substances in the water is far below legal thresholds.

EWE WASSER GmbH, based in Cuxhaven, Germany, is a wholly owned subsidiary of EWE VERTRIEB GmbH. The company was created in mid-2007 from the Cuxhaven municipal utility and the former subsidiary EWE Wasser GmbH.
