General objectives of the Project

The main objectives of the Project are to meet the requirements
of the Urban WastewaterTreatment Directive (91/271/EEC) in the Zabok agglomeration
(> 15,000 PE with sensitiverecipient, III. stage of purification), in the Zlatar
agglomeration (in the range of10.000 – 15.000 PE, III. level purification) and the
Water Framework Directive – Directive
2000/60/EC.
The basic goals can be summarized as:
• increase the degree of connection of the population to the public sewerage system
• ensure adequate wastewater treatment by building 2 wastewater treatment plants
• increase the efficiency and reliability of the public drainage
and wastewater treatmentsystem by introducing the economic price of water (polluter pays principle).

It is planned to increase the degree of connection of the population
– in the Zabok agglomeration from 50% to 88% (including 100% connection of the economy),
with the long-term possibility of connecting almost all users (99%).
– in the Zlatar agglomeration from 33% to 79% (including 100% connection of the economy),
with the long-term possibility of connecting almost all users (99%).

Operational Programme Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014 – 2020 – Specific Objective 6ii2:

• Recovery of the public drainage system in order to prevent soil and water pollution,
• Construction of the extension of the public drainage system will collect additional quantities
of wastewater that are currently inadequately discharged without any treatment for
10.000 households – higher degree of connection of the population to public drainage systems and
higher amount of wastewater treated at the appropriate level after
collection,
•The construction of two WWTPs with a nominal capacity of 51.630 PE and a sludge
drying plant will treat the system wastewaters with III. degree of purification for reference years.

The purpose of this project is to significantly improve the existing condition of infrastructure and
buildings for drainage and wastewater treatment in two drainage and wastewater treatment systems
(Agglomeration Zabok and Agglomeration Zlatar) in accordance with the main environmental and social priorities,
together with achieving water quality standards prescribed by the EU and their related deadlines.
