Loans from the EBRD have now funded the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant as well as two wastewater collectors.

The project has also seen the removal of all old septic tanks, the replacement of asbestos-cement water pipes as well as the expansion of the water supply network.

A consultant hired for the project also ensured that all the facilities comply with European Union (EU) standards.

The EBRD provided €12 million over two phases of the project, while the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency and the European Union provided grant co-financing amounting to an extra €4 million and €6.5 million  respectively.

The donor partners also funded technical cooperation to help manage and implement the project.
