Feasibility Study for Sewage Disposal for the Coastal Region in Montenegro

Client: KfW Germany / VODACOM d.o.o., Tivat, Montenegro
Staff Number: 15
Start Date (Month/Year): July 2006
Completion Date (Month/Year): November 2006

Narrative Description of Project:
The coastal region of Montenegro has an important relevance for the development of tourism in Montenegro. Currently the number of tourists is increasing. The environmental problems are also increasing in accordance to the economic development of this region. Especially the insufficient waste water system will be an increasing threat for the development of the region because of the inadequate sewer networks and the lack of sewage treatment. The wastewater of coastal region is discharged without treatment into the Adriatic Sea. In the future, the entire wastewater of this locality shall be cleaned up in compliance to the European Union guidelines. The coastal area consists of following municipalities: Heceg Novi, Kotor, Bydva, Bar and Ulcinj. In addition, municipality of Cetinje, located at inland of the area is also in the scope of this project. To mitigate the environmental problems the KfW intends to provide further 30 million Euro for the
improvement of the sewage situation. For the integration of these funds into a reasonable long term development concept, the feasibility study for the coastal region of Montenegro was prepared. Within the scope of the project work, the most feasible economical solutions for the sewerage networks and WWTP’s are to be found considering the difficult, location-specific conditions. The project measures were divided into priority project measures and long-term projects measures.

Description of Actual Services Provided by ITSC:
