Extension and the rehabilitation of water and wastewater systems in Tulcea County
The project purpose is rehabilitation of the water supply system and wastewater collection and treatment systems in the agglomerations of Tulcea, Sulina, Isaccea and Macin in order to meet the water compliance obligations in the Accession Treaty and the objectives of the Sectoral Operational Programme for Environment.
It mainly consists of the measures for rehabilitation of groundwater sources and river intake, rehabilitation of water transmission pipes, pumping stations and water treatment plants (sand filter, coagulation – flocculation, granulated activated carbon and chlorination), rehabilitation and creation of water reservoirs, pumping stations, water metering and distribution networks and rehabilitation and extension of the wastewater collection and the implementation of three wastewater treatment plants (respectively 100 000 pe, 5 000 pe and 10 000 pe). Target population served will be around 106 000 inhabitants.
What are the project likely benefits?
Some 106 000 inhabitants living in the project area will directly benefit from improved water services. Particularly, the investment will improve the quality of life of the citizens living in the service area by ensuring better access to drinking water and wastewater services.
Safe drinking water will contribute to reduce health risks for the population. Wastewater disposal and treatment will improve the hygienic conditions and the quality of the environment. Reliable and compliant water services will in turn make the Tulcea County a more attractive place to invest in.
What are the project likely environmental benefits ?
Significant environmental benefits will stem from the elimination of groundwater and subsoil contamination thanks to the rehabilitation of the wastewater system.
