CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Managing Authority of Operational Programme Environment 2007 - 2013 announces call for proposals on construction of wastewater treatment plants for agglomerations with over 10 000 population equivalent (PE). 510 million Bulgarian leva will be allocated under the procedure. The deadline for application is 15 December. Minister Chakarov urged the municipalities to be more active, because the construction of wastewater treatment plants in settlements with over 10 000 PE till 2010 is a commitment which our country has undertaken to the European Union.

MoEW will send letters to all municipalities that must prepare the construction of such treatment plants, the Minister announced, and reminded that they have already received such letters regarding the call for proposals on construction projects in water sector, which ended on May 30 this year.

MoEW estimates show that there are 121 settlements in the country with over 10 000 population equivalent having to start construction of 54 wastewater treatment plants. Others have been finalized or are at a different stage of construction.

Necessary documents for application (in Bulgarian) can be found in section Current calls for proposals at the OPE website (ope.moew.government.bg) as well as at www.eufunds.bg.
