The CWWTP would treat sewage discharges from Vrbas and Kula towns, villages of Vrbas municipality and pre-treated industrial wastewater for identified industries.

 

  • Extension of the sanitary sewerage collection system

 

Additional sanitary sewerage system shall be constructed in: Kucura, Zmajevo, Bačko Dobro Polje, Ravno Selo and Savino Selo, and would include the following: 83,2 km of collection network, 30 km of transmission main and 22 small pumping stations.

The extension of the sanitary sewerage collection system will significantly improve the coverage in waste water collection, and will substitute current practice relying on individual septic tanks that represent potential source of pollution of ground and surface waters, and serious health hazard. Through the project the urban area of Vrbas and the 5 villages are to be fully covered, including a connection to the CWWTP.

 

  • Main sewers connecting Kula and Crvenka to CWWTP Vrbas

 

It is further planned to connect the sanitary sewerage system of Kula and Crvenka to the CWWTP by constructing the main sewer line between Kula and Vrbas, and corresponding sewage pumping stations. Sections I to IV of the main sewerage line between Kula and Vrbas have already been completed, whereas section V (some 2,6 km long) is constructed during 2011.
