Better access to clean drinking water in Bulgaria thanks to Cohesion Policy investments

After Romania, Bulgaria is now getting help for clean water. €35 million from the Cohesion Fund is invested in the drinking and waste water network of the city of Vratsa, in North-West Bulgaria. With this investment, the urban area’s 111,600 inhabitants will be connected to a modern water distribution system while the upgrading works will result in a considerable decrease in water losses.

The project also involves the renovation of a wastewater treatment plant. Commissioner for Regional policy Corina Creţu said: “In some of our regions, easy access to clean drinking water is not a given. The EU invests to improve the everyday lives of all our citizens, to protect their health and preserve their environment. This is EU solidarity at work./IBNA
