ECONOMIC REGION OF UPPER BAVARIA
BUILDING NEW SEWERS, REGENERATING OLD ONES
Diana Klose, Steinzeug-Keramo GmbH
With its three major urban districts and 20 rural districts, Upper Bavaria is the largest of all administrative districts in Bavaria and one of the most potent economic regions in Germany and indeed Europe, with a highly impressive trade balance.
This economic success is naturally due, in no small part, to the investments the region makes in its subterranean infrastructure: the “efforts” made by the local administrations in the construction of sewers are impressive (see map). By opting for sewer systems made with vitrified-clay pipes for many projects, the local councils have long since demonstrated their farsightedness and sense of responsibility for their citizens and the public purse alike when it comes to investing in the construction of new sewers and the regeneration of old ones.
