Water Revolution in Action
The heart of the water-quarter in Mülheim an der Ruhr is in the Styrum district, in the north-west of the city. It is one of 14 water-quarters as part of the nationwide water revolution.
Located directly on the Ruhr, surface water is processed into drinking water by the Rheinisch-Westfälische Wasserwerkgesellschaft mbH (RWW). A former water tower in the quarter has been converted into a water museum (Aquarius) and is used for interactive educational work on the subject of (tap) water. There is a lot going on in the multicultural district of Styrum: committed educational institutions, foundations and companies shape the active cultural life. We feel really good in our water-quarter and are promoting the water revolution together with interested citizens on site.
