Chisinau, 6 May /MOLDPRES/- The Ministry of Agriculture, Regional Development and Environment (MADRM) and the French company SEURECA signed today a consultancy contract for the elaboration of feasibility and impact study for the wastewater treatment plant in Soroca.
The study will be set to provide a complex analysis of the situation on state of sewerage systems, sanitation and wastewater management in Soroca. "By August, the French experts will present best solutions and measures needed to improve these services and the environment in the region," says MADRM.
The signing of the consulting contract took place with the support of a grant for the development of the project Security of water supply and sanitation in the Republic of Moldova, implemented by the Project Implementation Unit in Environment.
The French company SEURECA is part of the VEOLIA group, a world leader in the provision of water, energy and sanitation services, has experience in the sector, being recognized for designing solutions adapted to current environmental challenges.
The lack of a treatment plant in Soroca, which would filter wastewater, is considered by specialists as an "ecological bomb with a delayed effect", because for two decades household waste has been flowing directly into the Dniester River. In recent years, the authorities are looking for solutions and funding for this project.
