Residents of Bosilegrad Municipality will have access to quality drinking water thanks to the works currently in their final stages.
“By building a water supply system, we will solve our long-standing problem with a stable water supply, and more than 4,500 people living in the Dobri dol settlement and the villages of Rajcilovci, Radičevci, and Mlekominci will have good drinking water, while reducing losses in the water supply system,” said Vladimir Zahariev, President municipality of Bosilegrad participating in the financing of the project with 9,300 euros.
Through good governance activities carried out in partnership with the Swiss PRO program supported by the Government of Switzerland, an efficient system will be established for the calculation and measurement of water capacity and distribution.
The costs of the 310,000-euro works, which include the construction of more than seven kilometers of pipelines and the rehabilitation of the Roda water supply system, were funded equally by the EU through the EU PRO program and the Government of the Republic of Serbia.
The Contractor is a group made up of the Public Utilities and Services Company “Service” from Bosilegrad and Hidrokomerc d.o.o. from Lučani, who was selected in the procurement process conducted by the municipality of Bosilegrad, with a deadline of 280 days to complete.
The project to complete the construction of the Bosilegrad water supply system is funded by the European Union in partnership with the Government of the Republic of Serbia through the EU PRO program. Complementary project activities related to the application of the principle of good governance are carried out in cooperation with the Swiss PRO program supported by the Government of Switzerland.
