Wastewater Collection and Treatment Project Dvorniky
Dvorniky is located in the west of the country, in the region of Trnava, which, despite its proximity to the capital Bratislava, is still quite underdeveloped compared to the rest of the country. The municipality lags behind in relation to the quality of waste water collection and treatment and has no waste water network system. Only about 60% of the population live in houses that are connected to a public sewage system, which is a very low figure compared to the average in the EU-15 (84.4%). The project aims to provide an adapted and affordable waste water collection and treatment infrastructure and to improve the quality of the underground and surface waters in the region.
Environment and Infrastructure
Basic Infrastructure: Waste Water
The direct beneficiary is the municipality of Dvorniky as owner of the sewage network and of the waste water treatment plant. The indirect beneficiaries are the 2'100 inhabitants of Dvorniky, of which about 85% shall be connected by 2015 to the waste water collection and treatment system. These include domestic customers as well as small commercial enterprises and public institutions (e.g. schools, medical centre).
The overall project objective is to contribute to a sustainable socio-economic development in Dvorniky by improving the capacity of the municipality to provide good quality public services and increasing the awareness of the population for environmental issues. In particular, the project will provide an adapted and affordable waste water collection and treatment infrastructure and improve the quality of the underground and surface waters in the region.
The goal of the project is to improve the municipality’s capacities by implementing adapted and affordable wastewater collection and treatment infrastructure. Besides these technical issues, the project shall also achieve socio-economic and environmental objectives.
