Water Supply in South-East Kosovo

12.10.2010 - 31.12.2014

The South-eastern part of Kosovo is in need to further rehabilitate its water supply system. This part of the country is since the 1999-2000 war supported by Switzerland. After the recent development of new water resources, the regional water companies have now to deal with substantial water losses in the networks. Also operational costs still have potential for reduction, e.g. by adding storage capacities in order to profit of low tariff electricity costs. Furthermore, there are still many urban inhabitants not yet connected to the water supply system. In order to consolidate and enhance the sustainability of investments made so far, SECO is financing a new project involving the rehabilitation and extension of water pipe systems in Ferizaj, as well as the construction of a new reservoir at Gjilan. Furthermore, a new billing system is to be introduced in Ferizaj.
