Drinking water and urban waste water treatment development 2013. ÖKO Zrt. Evaluation tasks
Objectives-tasks Performance regarding compliance with our derogation obligations – Directive 91/271/ECC concerning urban wastewater treatment – 98/83/EC on the quality of water intended for human consumption: assessment of compliance in Hungary Wastewater management development demands expected to be transferred to the 2014-2020 period. Development demands to be financed from the 2014-2020 budget that fall outside the scope of derogation obligations (wastewater, drinking water). Time horizon for the survey: 200 0 -2013. Focus on EEOP projects.

Status of fulfilling wastewater derogation obligations
Projects scheduled for the 2014- 2020 period According to the wastewater programme in effect, development projects in some 154 agglomerations (with a load corresponding to 2 million PE) are expected to be postponed to the 2014-2020 period. The survey will estimate development costs for the 2014-2020 period, from the specific costs of EEOP projects (HUF/PE, million HUF/agglomeration), for agglomeration classes and action types. The development sources needed by the agglomerations not yet having joined the EEOP are estimated to exceed HUF 300 bn.
Accelerating the implementation of the wastewater programme Wastewater collection and treatment projects have already been classified as priority investments to accelerate administrative procedures. Connecting to the sewer network made legally compulsory. Central intervention to boost the slow progress of projects aiming at improving water quality that are already in the implementation phase
Recommendations: Options to reduce estimated wastewater investment and operational costs Review of the geographical definition of agglomerations is recommended. In order to detailed assessment of remaining tasks, selecting efficient solutions (agglomeration borders within settlements, review of regional solutions) Spread of Individual wastewater system is recommended. In order to Programme to promote individual solutions should be developed, Establishment of the necessary legislative and institutional background. Application criteria should be updated, for agglomerations above 2000 PE. Regarding individual solutions as compulsory public service by the legislation Results: cheaper service, lower fees, financially sustainable service. Development demands may be reduced significantly, by as much as 20%.
Requirements of the drinking water Directive 3-level system of criteria: Compliance with each criterium of the Directive. Derogation requirements, deadlines set in the EU Accession Treaty (2006 for boron, fluorine and nitrite; 2009 for arsenic). According to 2010 data, the total number of impacted population is 888 473 (365 settlements) National Drinking Water Quality Improvement Programme (DWQIP). In the Programme, ammonium is a priority substance in addition to the derogation parameters, with a deadline of 2009. According to the Govt. Decree, the total number of impacted population is 2 251 401 (835 settlements).
What has been achieved? Drinking water EEOP projects.
What has been achieved? Drinking water EEOP projects As a result of implemented DWQIP projects, a total number of 167 thousand people have access now to clean drinking water (mostly CF and EIOP projects). From the 167 thousand people, altogether 13 400 (8%) are impacted by EEOP projects. According to the UMIS survey of 14 January 2013, the progress of implementing DWQIP projects has significantly improved. In the past almost 9 months, the number of projects with concluded grant contracts has increased by 32; the projects ready for implementation has grown by 29 (35%). Each impacted settlement is included in the application system.
Estimating investment costs The expected total sum of grant requests for improving the quality of drinking water in the framework of EEOP is estimated at around HUF 130 to 144 billion. The total financial framework is HUF 131.17 bn. Some projects are expected to be postponed to the 2014-2020 period. Bridge projects are also expected ( e.g. Békés County)
Accelerating the DWQIP since 2011. 100% financing of self contribution Accelerating administrative procedures by classifying drinking water quality improvement projects as priority investments. Central intervention to boost the slow progress of projects aiming at improving water quality that are already in the implementation phase; coordination by the Ministry of Domestic Affairs Decisions should be made within 30 days of submitting EEOP projects, Monitoring projects in the implementation phase that do not require intervention, professional aid, accelerating administrative procedures, Temporary drinking water supply by the portable water purification system (containers) of the Ministry of Defense (before their deployment: water supply from trucks) in settlements where the project is not expected to be finished by the end of 2013.
Recommendations: costs reduction opportunities The development of large, cost-efficient waterworks and regional supply systems should be supported instead of small waterworks that require technological updating. Results: cheaper service, lower fees, financially sustainable service. Current situation: high fees, increasing receivables, inreasing number of customers with debt.
