Strategy for Drinking Water Supply in Bela Crkva Region of Serbia (Phases I and II)
Czech Development Agency
February 2014 – December 2016
Bela Crkva, located in Vojvodina province, had no clear strategy for the management of drinking water and waste water. The volume of extracted groundwater and consumed water was not exactly known, drinking water quality fluctuated, levels of pollution due to uncontrolled waste water discharge were not regularly monitored, there was no inventory or map of the potential water sources. This has impacted on people’s health as well as on the quality of environment. The purpose of the first phase of the project was to develop medium and long – term drinking water management strategy including project documentation for the implementation of selected technical solutions under phase II. Phase II included the realization of these technical solutions and measures to improve the drinking water supply in the region.lessmore
