The 13 municipalities of the subregion Borsod-Abaúd-Zemplén, GW Borsodvíz Ltd., the 38'520 inhabitants as well as the 30'000 tourists.
The water company (Borsodvíz Zrt.), a publicly owned company that owns the water infrastructure, strives to rehabilitate the most critical elements of its water supply network in 11 municipalities of the micro-regions of Abaúj-Hegyköz, Mezőcsát and Tokaj. The transportation mains, city mains and household connections suffer from early aging due to poor quality of the pipes, un-thorough execution of the mounting works and insufficient bedding of the pipes. Furthermore the deterioration is accelerated by the aggressive geological conditions. Additionally, the water company plans to introduce a water supply network in the Emőd-Adordjántanya and Sima settlements that are only partly or not at all connected to a network.
