Water Supply Rehabilitation Ózd
The control system for the water supply in the municipality of Ózd is antiquated, and 700 to 800 households are not connected to it. Switzerland intends to change this situation by a project contribution of CHF 7.1 million. The aim is to ensure the same level of service standard in the entire municipality, to improve the water quality, and to reduce maintenance costs.
Environment and Infrastructure
Basic Infrastructure: Drinking Water
The municipality of Ózd, Ózd Water and Canalisation Ltd. as well as the 38‘400 inhabitants of this area.
The municipality of Ózd town in partnership with the Ózd Water and Canalisation Ltd, a publicly owned company that operates the drinking water supply, strives to rehabilitate the most critical elements of its water supply infrastructure (network pipes and devices and storage basins). 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.
