The works include constructing and upgrading 3 wastewater treatment plants, leading to the connection of 90% of the wastewater agglomerations to the sewer collection system, and 90% of the agglomerations to the drinking water network, with guaranteed access to safe water resources.

Doing away with pollution

The company SC NOVA APASERV S.A is responsible for carrying out the project works and helping the region meet the water compliance obligations set out in the Accession Treaty and the objectives of the Sectoral Operational Programme for the Environment. The agglomerations covered by the project are Botosani – Catamarasti, Dorohoi – Broscauti, Flamanzi – Frumusica, Vorona – Tudora and Stefanesti – Saveni. The project is expected to directly generate 180 jobs during the implementation phase, another 60 over the long-term.

The investment will enhance the quality of life of citizens living in the service area by ensuring better access to drinking water and wastewater services. The improvement of the wastewater collection and treatment will bring about a considerable reduction in organic and nutrient pollution load discharged directly into the receiving water bodies. Significant environmental benefits will also stem from the elimination of groundwater and subsoil contamination as a result of the extended wastewater system.

Extensive rethink of networks

The following features reflect the extent of the project in each agglomeration:

  • Botosani: upgrading the water transmission main and water treatment plant, constructing a discharge pipe, extending and upgrading the distribution network, including new pumping stations, and extending the sewage network;
  • Dorohoi: upgrading the water treatment plant and transmission main, and extending and upgrading the water distribution network, sewage network and wastewater treatment plant, including new wastewater pumping stations;
  • Flamanzi – Frumusica: extending the water distribution network and sewage network, including pumping stations, and constructing a new wastewater treatment plant;
  • Vorona – Tudora: extending the sewage network, including new wastewater pumping stations, and building a new wastewater treatment plant;
  • Stefanesti – Saveni: constructing a chlorination plant, pumping stations and water transmission main, extending and upgrading the water treatment plant, and building and upgrading reservoirs.
