About the entity

European Commission
The European Commission is the EU's executive arm. It takes decisions on the Union's political and strategic direction.

The investments refer to two projects that will improve quality and access to drinking water, as well as wastewater treatment in the area.

Work on water supply infrastructure includes nine new water treatment plants, additional 1,061 km of new network and 40 new reservoirs in addition to restoration of existing infrastructure. As regards wastewater, four wastewater treatment plants will be built and another three will be expanded while 761 km of new sewerage network will be laid, and existing infrastructure will be restored.

These investments will contribute towards Romania’s compliance with the EU Urban Wastewater and Drinking Water Directives and create jobs, benefitting all social groups in the area. They complement other projects funded under the 2007-2013 programming period.

Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira, said: “These major projects will continue to improve the quality and availability of water, reducing the risk of illness for people and improving their quality of life. The projects also contribute to the sustainable development of the area by fostering biodiversity and reducing losses in the water supply network. Once again Cohesion Policy demonstrates that it is concretely improving the life of citizens!”

These investments are part of a vaster plan to improve water and wastewater infrastructure across Romania.
