At the opening of the previous Exhibition on Water it was emphasized that in Serbia the water quality is generally good, but lately it is threatens in several cities. Constantly deterioration of the environment and increasing the number of consumers requires Water Utilities as well as State and Local Government make further efforts to secure sufficient drinking water quantities of required quality. Achieving these goals is possible through greater involvement in the environmental protection regulation and water sources as well as wastewater sanitation and treatment.
Unfortunately sewage systems did not follow the construction of water supply, which is confirmed by the fact that Serbia has 15,000 km of sewer network and 50 Wastewater treatment Plant mainly with smaller capacity. The quantity of treated wastewater is approximately 10% of the collected wastewater. To meet EU and National standards for wastewater treatment will require huge investments.
