Since 1883
In the 19th century, pollution in the city of Gouda reached an all-time high. Garbage, mud, and manure covered the streets, and the city’s canals served as both a source of drinking water and as the city sewer. Cholera broke out in 1868, killing hundreds of people. In response, the city council decided to make clean water from the IJssel freely available, eradicating the disease within a few years. Under pressure from the health committee, the council founded the Goudse Waterleiding Maatschappij (Water Pipe Company of Gouda). On 3 December 1883, the company supplied clean drinking water to its first 165 houses connected to the pipeline network.
