World Bank Funds Better Water Quality in Bulgaria with EUR 81 M

Date: 29.11.2009

The World Bank has allocated EUR 81 M for the improvement of water quality in four Bulgarian municipalities

The Municipal Infrastructure Development Project in Bulgaria was approved Tuesday by the World Bank’s Board of Directors. It will aid local authorities across the country in investment-planning for the water sector, and improving the reliability and quality of water provision in four municipalities, the World Bank has announced.

The Municipal Infrastructure Development Project is expected to improve the quality of life of more than 141 000 Bulgarians in the municipalities of Madan, Rudozem, Tryavna, and Panagyurishte.

The measures it will finance include the preparation of 48 regional Master Plans for Water Supply and Sewerage systems (ViK systems), including 40 Master Plans for urban settlements, within six regions, and the completion of construction of three dams that was interrupted about 20 years ago along with the rehabilitation of a fourth dam that is currently operational.

“The citizens of municipalities of Rudozem, Madan, Tryavna, and Panagyuriste in Bulgaria are all looking forward to seeing a significant improvement in the water supply to their communities. The lack of a steady source of quality drinking water as well as water for agricultural use is seen by many as one of the main issues affecting their well-being... The World Bank’s funding for finalizing the construction provides an opportunity for further economic development, including tourism growth,” said Gabriel Ionita, World Bank Senior Agriculture Specialist and Task Team Leader of the project.

“The World Bank and the Government of Bulgaria are currently working closely to identify the Bank’s future support to Bulgaria's key development priorities with the goal of accelerating growth and improving living standards,” World Bank Country Manager for Bulgaria, Florian Fichtl, is quoted as saying.
