Agreement signed on HRK 141 mln project to build sewerage system in Vodice, Tribunj

Agreements on grants, co-financing and partnership in a project to build a sewerage and wastewater treatment system in the coastal communities of Vodice, Srima and Tribunj, worth HRK 141 million, were signed in Vodice on Monday.

The agreements were signed by Agriculture Minister Tihomir Jakovina, Hrvatske Vode water management company CEO Ivica Plisic, and representatives of the three communities.
The EU will co-finance the project with more than 73% of the necessary funding or HRK 84.6 million, while the rest will be provided by the state and the towns of Vodice and Tribunj.
The Vodice-Tribunj-Srima agglomeration consists of a densely populated part of Vodice and of Tribunj municipality, with the area being predominantly oriented to tourism. Even though 90% of the area is covered by a water supply system, the system is obsolete and water losses are huge and at some of its sections as much as 50% of the water is lost.
As regards the sewerage system, the situation is much worse because only 29% of households are connected to it. In settlements in and outside the agglomeration there is no functioning sewerage and wastewater treatment system, which poses a risk of sea pollution, it was said at the signing ceremony.
It is estimated that the first stage of the project to build the sewerage and wastewater processing system will be completed by the end of 2017, that its completion will improve the quality of water for current users and increase the rate of coverage of households by the public sewerage system to 54%.
