MINISTER NONA KARADZHOVA SIGNED CONTRACT FOR WATER SUPPLY AND SEWERAGE SYSTEM CONSTRUCTION IN SMOLYAN

The Minister of Environment and Water Nona Karadzhova and the mayor of Smolyan Dora Yankova signed a contract for finishing the construction of the water supply and sewerage network in the town with funds provided by Operational Programme Environment. The project is worth BGN 41 million, BGN 33 million of which will be granted by the EU Cohesion Fund and the rest will be provided from the state budget.

The investment envisages construction and rehabilitation of 25 km-long sewerage system and 15 km - long water pipe in the districts of Kaptazha, Smolyan, Raikovo and Ustovo. The project will also equip the urban waste water treatment plant, constructed under ISPA, with tertiary waste water treatment (by removing phosphorus).

The main benefit from the investment will be the provision of high-quality water supply and collection of waste water for the over 17,000 citizens of the four districts. Thus, by the end of 2014, Smolyan will see a 95% completed construction in its water supply and sewerage system and full treatment of the waste water discharged in river Cherna.
